I'm still NOT decorating!

I couldn't bear the thought of putting up my Christmas lights with a weedy flowerbed, so on Saturday afternoon, I spent several hours pulling weeds. MUCH better now. I can acutally see my plants.
I adore the way my dwarf Nandina 'Firepower' changes from the spring and summer bright green to the deep red!

I will be sad when the first good frost kills back my Blue Daze!

This plant is called Maltese Cross. This one was well over 8 feet tall until I came out one day to find it broken! I was so sad. I put the top piece into a pot of dirt, and it rooted. The rest of the plant started growing new leaves all up and down the stems that had preciously lost their leaves. I was so happy. I had not had much luck rooting this plant in the past!
I also decided to re-organize my mixing cart. I took my bread machine off since it no longer works! Let's see, my flowerbed is ready for lights, and I am all organized for Christmas baking! I did manage to get the Christmas boxes out of the attic with the assistance of my son and his friend! Let the decorating begin!
Ya'll Come Back!


  1. If I could only have one shrub, I think it would be Nandina; they are so amazing the way they change color!
    Dang, girl, you've got a rolls royce of a baking cart! I can already smell the bread baking.

  2. That maltese cross is awesome! The garden bed looks good too.

  3. You've got a green thumb and I understand about the weeding thing! THAT's why I only have decorations inside to far...LOL! Also, love your blog...I'll be back! Susan

  4. A mixing cart! What a GREAT idea!

  5. The frost last night killed off my Blue Daze, I'm fairly certain! So sad too!

  6. Hi Lorilee, This is my fist visit to your blog and I LOVE it. Your mixing cart idea is great. The perfect place to keep all your baking tools handy.
    Love the pictures of your family too...:)
    Biggest Hugs,

  7. If only I had a baking/mixing cart like that, I just know I could be the worlds best pastry chefette..:)
