01 Dec Plants for the Season
I, on the other hand, although a little excited about the holidays, haven’t even started with getting a tree or some needed decorations to replace old ones, or gifts. As soon as I start to think about gifts-my mind shuts down. LOL. I did grab something for my mom at an art show for her garden-it was so obviously her. And I do have something for both brothers and their families. But that’s it. The kids have their requests ready and I have given them the usual speech, “you aren’t getting all of those, you know”, and still the lists hang on the refrigerator.
I thought that I might have time to breathe after Thanksgiving, but I wasn’t planning on a computer crash and some other things in my life going haywire. My daughter’s band concert tomorrow opens the season of school programs and holiday cheer. So maybe after that I will get some more gumption to actually complete what I’m excited about.
Are you planning on incorporating plants into your holiday décor? I do have a fresh wreath and centerpiece from Grandma D’s/Wreaths Direct. Both smell delightful. They have fresh noble firs, pine cones and juniper berries within the wreath. (Enter w0834 for free USA shipping) And I do we might purchase some poinsettias for the mantel-as long as the kids and the cats don’t eat them-and of course there is a tree to consider.
What plants will you be enjoying this holiday season? Anyone have a Christmas Cactus?
