holiday happiness day 10 ~ 12 days of christmas

as many of you know...i am joining my sister, meems @ hoe and shovel in posting from the garden or outside decor...the 12 days of christmas.

we have had our lion's share of rain...flooding in some areas.
the colours of this cabbage for ornamental sake is so vivacious.
with the water droplets on it...stunning.

the birdbaths are all refreshed with rain.

not planned but nice none the less is
this photo of nandina berries overlayed on the trees.

this day is also the birthday of our grand.....gwyne...she is a treasure and 10 years old today on the 10th of december, on the 10th day of the 12 days of christmas.

happy day dear gwyne...have a wonderful day.

Your Grand daughter is a doll! Happy Birthday to her.
It is 8 degrees this morning at my house. The gardens have their blanket of snow. The birds are flocking to the feeders and the one water source we keep defrosted.
Happy 12 Days of Christmas.
Posting with your sister sounds so fun. I will visit her too.
Your plants are in brilliant color.
Stay dry,

Good morning. Happy birthday to Gwyne!! We have a foot of snow here instead of rain. Unpleasant.

Pretty cabbage.

I remember when you planted that cabbage and I think you have gotten just what you hoped for if I recall. It is offering you vibrant color in the midst of winter temps and dreary days.

And Happy Birthday to all our December born children! But especially to beautiful Gwynevere today...
