I'm back. Sorry for the absence. I was ill earlier in the month and We had that horrible wind storm in our area which knocked out our power for a week and our Internet for 12 days. So its good to be back to share some photos and thoughts.

The above pictures are of a Holiday Nest of fruit and foliage from the garden. I love the natural textures and Autumn/Winter colour combinations. Hope you do too.

Happy Holidays

A few shots of some Poinsettias that I took at a recent visit to Molbaks. This year Molbaks is growing 50 different varieties. Last year I had the opportunity to go to the Poinsettia trials up in British Columbia and see 200 new hybrids. Its amazing to see, through hybridization, all the new colours, bract formation, shapes and sizes. Seeing all these beautiful plants really does help get me in the holiday spirit.
