keeping watch over their flock by night.
And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them:
and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not:
for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God,
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth
good will toward men.

The potting shed got turned back into a garage
The snowblower is ready as are the shovels.
The decorations are put in place...snow flakes and red balls this year, no lights
A new temp gauge is placed on the south fence
A couple lanterns are hung and a couple solar lights placed.
Decorated the large planter with red twig dogwood and evergreen bows.
And the snow man from the boutique is wishing everyone that passes a Happy Holiday.

Most of the flowers are gone now with the cold and snow that we've had in the last 24 hours. Still have the yellow tuberous begonia, a few lavender flowers, and one Mum plant is still flowering. It's one I got from my brother that appeared dead when I got it in the summer. The leaves have finally turned on the red maple and they will be coming down soon. They are wonderful mulch and I hope I can get them raked up before a lot of snow comes. I have the snow blower all tuned up and ready to go, but I don't have my garden shed turned back into a garage yet. I'll wait for a sunny day as that seems to make it easier to do and I can always bring out my small heater to keep warm. I have some decorations to put along the south fence for winter viewing LOL. That's about it, except to keep warm. Oh, I was going to get a new car before winter but now I don't think I will. I've had my old gray Honda so long that I'm having trouble parting with it. Like an old friend. It's a 1990 with almost 200,000 miles on it. That doesn't seem so long ago, but I guess it is for a car.

Tried to think of the names of the flowers but I can't. I'm am pleased that I still have some blooming up until today. Tonight there will be another killing frost.
This is the same kind of flower as the one above.
These are the flowers that I got when I took the class in organic gardening, you can also see a little of my peach tree, a little bench and my foot path

I added a couple ghostly images to this little side garden. Look at that Snow On The Mountain already growing after I pulled it all out a week ago. If you want something to fill in an area get Snow On The Mountain, it is hardy and dedicated.
I sit here quite often, this little bench by my side door. It was green and I recovered it and painted it so it would last the winter for me again. I'm hoping the paint color is the same as that of the fence in the picture on Deb's Hippie Farmer web site...what do you think?
My granddaughter immitating the ghost that we placed in the yard. It lights up and looks really cool.
My little scarecrow on the garage window shelf.
Pretty soon all the gardening will be done for another year and the beautiful green will be gone. I have prepared snowshoes, skies, sleds, skates, hockey sticks and pucks in preparation for playing in the winter. What do you do in the snow and cold of winter...I'd really like to hibernate but that makes it last too long.
