Today is absolutely gorgeous! It has faired up and the sun is out---it will reach the high 70's today! So, happily, I have been in the garden tidying up, pulling up any dead things and have spread red mulch around. If we don't have a white Christmas, at least the red mulch is pretty and gives a festive look to the garden and the house decorations.

Up the walk to Ten Gables. My grandsons will love the Christmas canes!
Even the two Leos that guard the front porch take on a friendly air with all the red bows and garlands, wreaths and poinsettias!
What a blue sky we have today with no clouds in sight! You can see the shadows from the two big oak trees in the front yard. Notice how sparse my garden is! I must plant a few more things, but will wait until cold weather is all gone. We have forecast next week of more cold. I do love the red mulch, though. It makes a bit of color and looks tidy, now.
