It's raining leaves!!

Sorry for not being around for so long - life just seems to get in the way!! but in a good way!! for the most part. Thought I would put up some pictures of what my yard looks like at this point in time - it rains leaves everyday and my yard is just covered. On this day it actually was raining!! you can see the rain drops on the picture below.
My Azalea bushes are in full bloom also.
Even the Camellia bushes are blooming. I just love this yard it blooms something all year long. The previous owner did an incredible job planting this yard, it is forever beautiful.Here is a close up of a Camilla bud.Yes, these Camillas are pink, the white ones will pop out in February/March! The bees are happy can you tell!!Will hopefully post some stitching soon - have to wait until some of the stitching is received by its new owners.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Holiday Season - We are in the throes of Christmas Decorating now. We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving, but Christmas will make up for it when our son comes in for a few weeks from San Francisco and my sister and niece from Ohio.

Thanks for dropping by --- I am hoping to be a better blogger and blog reader sometime soon, I hope!!!

What beautiful colours in your back yard, Roberta and that Camellia bud is beautiful.
We've still got amazing colour in our garden with hardy fuschias and brave begonias hanging on but we're forecast a frost tonight so tomorrow may well tell a different and less colourful story :>)
Glad you enjoyed Thanksgiving.
Won't it be lovely when the family gathers round for Christmas!
Hugs Angela

It's raining leaves where we are too! It is fun to watch them dance down to the ground. We also have Camelias in bloom.

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. I really can't believe it's almost Christmas!

Hello Roberta,

Thanks for these lovely pictures! I must admit the leaves have almost disappeared in Holland now.

All the best & greetings,
