Okay, I know that I am terribly late in blogging about Christmas. As a result, you will probably not be surprised that I didn’t get organized enough to send out Christmas cards this year either 😉
But, we did have a wonderful Christmas. Much of Christmas day was spent at Double S Farms, where my mother, my sister and her family live.
It was a beautiful day and I stole out into the garden to take photos of all that is growing….
|My mother’s vegetable garden is growing like crazy….|
|We always enjoy fresh broccoli from her garden in winter. We all love it….even the kids.|
|Curly Parsley with Marigolds planted nearby to discourage pests.|
|My mother makes a delicious salad using her Romaine lettuce. I promise to share our family’s special salad dressing recipe sometime soon.|
|Lemons are ready for picking at Christmas time.|
|So are the grapefruit…|
|The apple trees are almost bare.|
|The chickens are oblivious to all the festivities.|
|Although their coop is decorated with a Christmas wreath 😉|
|My mother’s beautifully decorated table. Notice the table gifts are decorated with a feather from the chickens.|
|My nephew, Finley getting ready to help me blow out my candle 🙂|
