you must be kidding ?? all new !! honest ... geranium photos, tres exciting for you I'm sure.

Please think of these blooms as my Christmas tree, my wreath or maybe twinkling holiday lights.

These geranium cuttings sit on my sunny wide office window sill waiting for roots. At a certain time late in the afternoon the low in the sky, golden sunshine falls on these gorgeous red petals and my breath is taken away ... yet again. Bare with me.

Miss D & I will be spending part of Christmas Eve with the Grinch, the dogson and my 5 year old friend- hooray !! Then back Christmas morning a short walk from here along Water Street past our harbour, ice free still, to their big, old rambling yellow house for Christmas trees, stockings, special breakfasts & some glee. That darn Prince will stay at home with the rest of our furry brood scheming, drawing + planning les next big project. Les beautiful + spectacular, one whole wall, home entertainment centre, built in is painted and begins loading today. OMGoodness- sighing.

The very best Christmas music

  7. You forgot my favourite peanuts one....


  8. i love that geranium; it's such a nice soft and gentle red and not an assault to the eye; perfect for Christmas. Do enjoy the holidays!

  9. Susan - loved both of these clips. Can understand it completely! I have 18 in my husband's family coming for a traditional hot sitdown dinner. Me, the social phobic!!! No-one will know, I will carry it off beautifully (fingers crossed so tightly at the moment they are nearly breaking) and dance like that little girl in the purple dress when it's all over!

  10. Thanks for coming over to my blog. I'm trying to rededicate myself to blogging (and painting) after a very rough year. Your work is AMAZING, INSPIRING and HONEST. I love that.
