A Christmas Walk

christmas3.jpgBrian and I went on a walk Christmas Day in our neighborhood. The grass was green and we found two places where the myrtle/periwinkle groundcover was actually blooming! (That is Brian in the red coat, in the photo at left.)

christmas1.jpgIt was very quiet in the neighborhood though we saw a few folks coming/going from houses and one other lone walker.

christmas2.jpg I took photos of decorations as we walked. I found one house where the inflatable decorations were deflated and flat, and it made me chuckle. Maybe they were out for the day or maybe they unplugged for some reason.

christmasflowers2.jpgYou already have seen decorated homes and no doubt these are redundant. But flowers blooming on December 25? In two gardens blocks apart? In Lansing, Michigan? I just had to share.
