We visited a garden center a week or so back to gather some greens
for the mantel - Santa and reindeers were almost airborne!
The poinsettias were perfect, and there were thousands, but we didn't
buy any this year with no company coming to the cottage, plus not
wanting to spend too much time around other shoppers - now I feel
growers/researchers in the USA - here they grow over 30,000 plants
annually. Their displays and greenhouses are a breathtaking sight
Usually there are hundreds of shoppers and many photographers.
The gift shop always has the most beautiful ornaments - this was my
favorite this year.
A few more colorful cottage corners.
Time is getting short. Today we deliver gifts to little ones and their
parents - just front porch stops, no going into homes, no hugging, no
sitting and nibbling or drinking and toasting . . . . . . . oh for a real,
old fashioned Christmas!
