12/12/12 Last time we will see these triple digit dates for a millenia!
I tend to follow a different beat than most, but I just had to share some garden photos. And yes, I took these pictures on Friday, December 7th and Monday, the 10th.
My pumpkins survived the neighborhood kids. So did the gourds. I don't have the heart to remove them, I'll just let them turn to compost.
My oregano is still flourishing, only herb that is still going strong.
And what is this on the dormant fig tree? A lone fig!
Some new growth on the tips, too. I have not enjoyed any figs from this tree since 2009 (it was planted in 2008). I hope next summer it proves me wrong. I love fresh figs. This is a little soft but I doubt it has any flavor.
My best garden surprise, a rose bud on my scrawny rose bush! It is not even a bush, it is a stick that just grows straight up without growing sideways at all (gee, wish that were me!). I wonder if this will bloom? Not sure it will but it was fun to discover it.
I saw something like this wreath snowman on Pinterest and thought it would be cute for the winter backyard. Dollar Tree wreaths and inexpensive garland. An old hat and scarf of mine. I like the willow showing, plus I was not buying another garland.
Fauxs always come in handy, too. I changed the mail/paper box for Christmas.
This key ONLY works for Santa.
I didn't do any outdoor lights this year. Why not? I am an 'old lady'. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
This was Monday morning, 58 degrees and so foggy!
