STill lots Bloomin in the cold

Howdee all,

Its getting colder here in North Carolina..past few mornings there has been frost on the ground. The news threatens snow on Saturday night…but we don’t believe them..or don’t want to.  Its now 54 at ten thirty in the morning…might reach 60…yippee..maybe that will get us outside for a walk. Yesterday I wanted to go for a walk and Jeff said it was too cold…I didn’t object. >Sissies we are<or maybe we are just lazy in our winter hibernation doldrums.

Any hoo…I did get out and take a few pictures.

Holly Berries are attracting the birds…

  1. Next week is supposed to be really chilly here - Highs only in the
    30s. And maybe snow this weekend.

    Stay warm!

  2. Love all the bright flowery colors you're still seeing. But those nuts look potentially dangerous to walk on. Would make great Christmas presents for your birding friends.

    All this predicted cold weather makes me think it's time to head further south. I'm really not good with snow.

  3. Nice flowers, and a heart to think about.

  4. Lovely flowers Dawn.
    54 degrees, we should be so lucky.

  5. Congratulations! I hope to have my site featured on some day. Great achievement!

  6. Dawn, the flowers are beautiful. I love the roses. The heart is really pretty. My driveway looks similiar with all the acorns all over the place.

  7. Howdee all,
