Merry Christmas!

Winter Solstice
(or nearish......)

Christmas Eve
(with thunder!)

Gwen says Merry Christmas!
From the very dirty mud tracked floor by the back doors-
this never ending rain has that effect-
but no point in mopping till the weather dries up for a bit.
Hence why I chose dark red tile.

Hibiscus Christmas Party!!

Confus-ed Skies

From one rainy-turned-to-sunny-turned-to-dramatic-dark-cloud-turned-to-sunny day last week.....

The moon, right there in the middle.

Outdoors and In

Pineapple Sage still going strong, 
despite its delicate zone 9 hardiness.
I was really amazed to see it last Spring, I assumed it had died the December before
-as tropical annuals do- 
but instead it beat the cold-hardiness odds and came back again from the root.
It is in such a lovely warm spot against the brick.
 I find red clay helps to keep roots warm in the winter,
same as it bakes them in July.

Miss Hibiscus keeping the indoor party going strong....

 At least until evening.

December Evening

I found doughnuts in the freezer just now.........
Chocolate doughnuts.
Too bad you aren't here. 

It's pretty happy.

One less toy.......
But on the plus side there is some lovely chicken wire if you need it.
So many uses for chicken wire.
Brilliant stuff.

Galbraith Finds His Spot

He is still too jumpy to be off the lead ever,

But he is getting to be a little wagger!

You rub my belly??

Cause belly rubs make me verraaa verraa happy.
And I might forget to be terrified of life......

But just for a little bit.

Such a Warm!! Goaty Day

From Whisper's photo shoot for her sale listing......
this one didn't make the cut.

Now we are getting there. 
Stand proud, Miss Whisper.
Stand proud.

All in a row.......
