Some years I'd be right there with you chugging along, Kathleen. But for some reason this year I was ready to move ahead on Jan. 1. Lovely images--I can see why you want to linger with your beautiful decorations!


Yesterday, with a heavy sigh and a sad heart, I hauled the last of the Christmas boxes to the attic. I wish it lasted longer, but when the radio stations unceremoniously stop Christmas music the day after and grocery stores rush to fill the shelves with Valentine's Day candy, I seem to be the last one to keep the season glad I'm not alone. As for the boxwood & leucothoe wreath on my door, it's staying for a while longer.


I ran right out the day after Christmas and got mine all down because the sun was shining and it usually gets bad here right after Christmas. I guess I would not have had to worry this year since we have had such a mild one so far. I usually then put up winter decorations so I do not have that big letdown afterwards.
Your hyacinths are going to smell so wonderful. Mine are just now starting to come up. Looks like your hyacinths outdoors are not far behind.


Can't wait to see your hyacinths blossom. I bet they will smell just lovely!
