But, I put on my big girl bloomers and got started. Here is my table tree. It is only a few feet tall and this year I went blue and white. The little snowman is cute. And sparkly.
This is the tree in my living room. A four foot "plug and glow"...easy to handle. I have little Santas, with red, white, and green bulbs. Not bad. And it is pretty with the room lights shut off.
While I was in the house putting up the trees, nature was outside acting very unnatural. It was a bit rainy today, but still about 60 degrees. I trimmed some of my rose bushes, but the ones next to the house were so sparse, I didn't do much to them. Between the rain and the warm days, I have lots of new growth and buds. Really?
This cymbidium is on the back porch next to the house. December to May is the blooming time. I will need to move this plant into the garage in the next week or so.
I finished my blanket for Dad's caregiver. She said that it is now her favorite blanket. She had seen it a few weeks ago and commented that she loved the colors, so I already knew that she liked it. I am happy that she was happy. The blue is a beautiful peacock color. The second picture shows the shell edging.
It is a tough time. Dad is not as good as he was even a month ago. He is sounding a little congested and has a runny nose. Is it just a cold? I don't know. His eating is slowing down, one of the things that they said would come at the end. We've put him on a muscle relaxant to help with the muscle contractions, but it doesn't seem to be helping. There are times when he groans, not in a painful way...but those sounds tear at my heart. I am so afraid that he will hurt at the end. That would be wrong. We've been going through this for three years, Dad deserves a quiet and peaceful end.
Enough sad. The weather has been crazy. I hope that each are you are safe and warm. Be kind to one another.
