Remember as I was leaving for the mountains a week ago… I, incorrectly, predicted my beautiful pear tree would be devoid of leaves and color except for the mountain of leaves on the ground by the time I returned? Wrong!
There still were plenty of leaves on the ground but now the continuum abundance of leaves on the tree were a brilliant fiery red!
So instead of fretting about starting work on decorating for Christmas-the most beautiful decoration of all was taking Christmas red center stage-nothing manmade on the porch would come equal to it!
It got me thinking as I walked around my gardens and saw other natural Christmas decorations-especially if you just add a sprig of holly or berries or pine cones.
We mortals make life a lot harder than it need be-rushing out to spend money on new decorations when nature has already provided all the beauty we need.
I checked the buds on Big Red and counted 10 more beginner buds-timing is everything but with a warm front coming in this week the buds should take off-I put a wall decoration behind Big Red to pick up the brick wall but Big Red will always be the star!
Then I found two look alike wreaths-Bingo-entrance doors done!
Now I want a cypress garland for my mantle but both Lowe’s and Home Depot said some might or might not come in-both were pretty vague. Anyone found any around here?
So until tomorrow… timing in life plays a major role throughout our lives-we just need to remember to let God guide our sleigh!
Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh
Walsh showed me their tree-he said the kids ” decorated ” it bunching everything in one spot on the front-so after everyone went to bed Walsh and Mollie spread out the decorations around the tree.
