The house is all decked out, just waiting for you....

I thought this would be a good time to share some pictures of our holiday decorations. We have been collecting decorations for a number of years. This year we had a holiday party the Saturday before Thanksgiving. That is why I have the whole house decked out in the Christmas bling.

I have not figured out how to take pictures of the lighted tree. The tree looks so good with the lights and the sparkle of the glass oriments. But when you take the picture it never looks as good. I am sure if I had a better camera and more experience I could take better pictures.

Last spring I wrote about this little guy. Should I keep it or compost it. Well I decided that if it survived the winter I would repost it and keep it for the summer. Once summer is over then I will decide. Along comes September, way too soon, and I had to make the decision. Well it was looking pretty good. Good color and bushy. I put it in the storage area with a grow light to control the amount of light it got and about 6 weeks later I started to see the color. You can see the after pictures what was once a small plant with a couple blooms now has a dozen or more blooms. I know that the color leaves are not blooms but you all know what I mean.
