Christmas Decorating


Christmas
 is my favorite time of year.

This year, the Mister and 
I are back
in South Carolina, 
living in our beloved
home town.

It's exciting decorating
 a new home and I've 
selected softer traditional 
colors . 

To the room with colors of
 blue and white,
 I've added a complimenting 
holiday theme.

The Christmas tree, eight
feet tall, has branches 
splashed with 
new fallen snow.


 Blue and white meets
Pink
Poinsettia.


Mister and Mrs Stockings


Soon to add fresh greenery
and of course lots of 
Christmas gifts
beneath the tree.

Sweet blessings for your day!

Fall Mums





Fall mums, Cooperstown New York.

Guard well your spare moments.
They are like uncut diamonds
Discard them and their value will
never be known. Improve them
and they will become the brightest
gens in a useful life.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Think on this. Blessings Dee Dee

The Gathering

We had our family "Gathering"  this spring, on an l800's  farm, belonging to our daughter and her very large family.  It's located in upstate New York, nestled in the Adirondack mountains. I have no words to describe the beauty there. We came together for a brief time and discovered what it means to be related. The children found uncles, aunts and cousins.  The men and boys enjoyed skeet shooting and the women folk never lacked for conversation.

We used old tables left in one 
of the three barns on the farm.


Wildflowers for the tables....the
meadows were covered with them.


White birch tree is leafing out...

Early spring on the farm. The lilacs were
just budding out in the picture. The gathering
took place in this meadow near the barn.

We've moved from Florida back to our 
beloved town in South Carolina.  My postings
will be about my southern life now and time
spent on the farm in the Adirondacks.

Lantana


Beginning to bloom, are sweet Lantana.

From all indications, spring is right around
the corner, here on the Gulf Coast of  Florida.

I'm hoping winter stays a good while longer,
as it offers coolness for outdoor activities.

Good blessings for your day! ~Dee Dee

Bird Watching/Photography



On a recent
outing to 
Honeymoon Island,
Florida, I had 
good fortune.


An Osprey sat high
on the branch in a
lone pine tree.

Enjoying the moments....Dee Dee
