Red and green…

December 22, 2012 § 4 Comments

There’s a bright cardinal in the bamboo forest just behind our house. He’s so like an ornament on a holiday tree.
I have a funny little fake tree and an extra red bow so today, I’ll put it outside on the back patio for the critters with some fruit and nuts and their beloved seeds in a bowl next to it.

Archie popped in earlier looking for a drink out of the little iron birdbath, but the water was frozen. I wondered if his tongue would get stuck to the ice as he tried to drink – it did not. He was delighted with the chestnuts I had tossed out there earlier while cleaning up the Christmasy kitchen counter.

There’s much to be done. And there’s no schedule!  Here’s to celebrating the season.

    Just beautiful! The simplicity and elegance of this setting. Have a Merry Christmas, oh, and all the best in the new year! Also, I’m sure you’ll enjoy Tolstoy’s long story in the winter holidays when we have some slow and quiet time to ourselves. Then the movie… I await your thoughts on them both. But then too, come Christmas Day there’ll be Les Mis., not to be missed. 😉

    There are those magic words – “no schedule”! What a terrific gift that little reality is! I hope your holidays are marvelous, filled with plenty of everything you want – especially companionship, memories and love.

    Merry Christmas!

    Ah — now there’s a question. Do animal tongues stick to the flagpole like in “A Christmas Story?” If you ever see, let me know!
