Here Comes Santa (Already)

Not much gardening went on this weekend. With Santa visiting Homeward Bound, all the elves were busy getting the dogs dressed in their holiday finest for photos, including a couple here from our friend Rob.


From naughty…


to nice…


we’re getting in the holiday spirit before Thanksgiving so everyone’s pictures will be ready for on-time card mailing this year.



Poor Santa; so exhausted, and he still has to head back to the North Pole to get ready for the big event!


The garden is quiet,


but still colorful enough to be inviting.







Next weekend, it will be time to lift the Dahlias. Until then, have a good week, all.

  1. Pictures are just beautiful. The garden still looks wonderful and the dogs are gorgeous. Thank you for my first smiles of the day.

  2. So nice to see flowers when here, all the leaves are off the trees, and color is mostly absent from the landscape for a few months to come. The colors of the season will be grey and brown and dirty white until Spring.
