White Christmas

Here is what it looked like from inside the house in Woodinville. (It's a video so you have to click the play button at the lower left).

Snow from outside:

The flakes were huge!

And the road home...

Simba and the basket

I brought home an empty gift basket from work for Simba to have. He had to carefully sniff every inch of it before getting in.

Happy Thanksgiving

I had a great Thanksgiving! I posted a few of the highlights on this music video:

It was cold outside - 28 degrees this morning at our house. I put the insulated cover over the outside hose connection and brought in all of the geraniums yesterday. Just in time. I think today I'll take a Big Nap.

Another storm is coming.

This carrot is the biggest yet! I went to the store today but none of their carrots were this fat.

Here is a bulb that is growing - maybe spring is coming?

One of my zucchinis is still growing.
The thistle is blooming again!The Christmas cactus has blooms on it.

This is what Simba looks like when he is right in your face. :)

Fall Colors

I was going to post these pictures last weekend. The tree in the yard still had leaves then. We had one day last week that it got below freezing - Thursday. I took the bus in but rode my bike home. Last weekend we also saw a chickadee use the bird bath! It was so cute! That was the first time I've seen any bird use the bird bath.

This Saturday I noticed all the leaves have fallen and just the berries are left!

New Baby!

John and Dorsey's Baby was born today! Hooray! Can't wait for them to start posting the pictures.

We had a wind storm this week and today was really cold. Yesterday there was thunder and hail!

The sumac made it through the year. I think next year it will be stronger and bigger.
Rhubarb is still hanging in there.
The ground cover is starting to cover the garden for winter. It needs to get a bit more lush to hold on to the soil for the next rain storm. I bought a eucalyptus plant and stuck it in the far corner.
Simba got a new house and was having fun playing in it. You can tell that he is a real nocturnal animal by his eyes. :)

And with the flash...

This is a bluebell that mom gave me. I planted it between the lavender plants.
It's almost Halloween time. :)

It's been really foggy the last couple of mornings and much colder. Fall is really here now. The tree lost it's leaves pretty fast!

I still have some carrots in my garden though. :)
