More Christmas Pink Roses


Photographers must be flexible. Often in a moment's notice, change is required. Roses are flexible too and will take on, as well as put up with, infinite changes. They serve all our whims so willingly. Yet again, roses posed and fulfilled my photo dreams. I don't want to get too serious. I'm just grateful that they are generous, and now especially, since the first frost has come to the garden. These were taken a couple of weeks ago.











The stars in this post are Monsieur Tillier, Poulsen's Pearl, Belle Story, Phyllis Bide, Safrano, Perle d'Or.











It's so much fun to make up characters, situations, and everything else about a story. I have so much freedom and flexibility to do whatever I want.

Our Other Christmas Tree


On FB they asked for more Christmas images, so here's our other Christmas tree.



This metal tree was a Smith and Hawken sale item when they went out of business a couple of years ago.



Just right for all my jewels,



and even little green pigs.





Not on one strand are all life's jewels strung.

Christmas Tree 2012


I always have so many plans of what and how I'm going to post here. If you only knew how many images and stories are in the queue. Well I decided to scrap it all, for the moment, and show you my Chirstmas tree.

On December 2, when I saw that beautiful 5-ft trees were going for $39, I had to have one. Never have we had a tree so early.   



I love collecting ornaments- having lots gives me an opportunity to try something new each year. Color blocking seemed to be the way to go this year.









I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
