December Spring





One week before Christmas, a walk around the yard with Canon in hand.




Roses appear a little nipped, yet not bad for this time of year!









The columbine would be better off hiding beneath the earth this time of year.










The snapdragons may actually burst into bloom if this "heat wave" continues a couple more days.

I've got violets out in the yard--they think it is spring! Isn't it weird???

While I'm all about warm weather, I'd like a little snow this winter. You know, it gives me something to complain about. :)

Not exactly what I picture in my mind for December - even in Indiana.

Love the tree face...(and if I never experience s*** again, it would be too soon)

Where's Vanilla?
Out in the yard shooting things with his canon. And the neighbors don't object.

Lin, I have to say you are welcome to any snow you might get.

Vee, it is somewhat unusual, though not unheard of.

Grace, I, too, like to avoid the s*** word, or more specifically, I like to avoid what it represents. My cousin had that face on a tree in Carencro, La., and when I admired it, she took it down and presented it to me.

Chuck, amazing, isn't it. I've never had a complaint.

Pearl, I'm liking it! But I fear it won't last.
