Christmas Garden ...

It's that time. I'm convinced this year has gone faster than any other. The BBQ us ready for action. I still have to touch up the wall and make it match the old (oh dear!) - do hope I'm up to the task. I love that wall.  Here are a few photos.

Hope you are all planning something special even if it's small and intimate for one.  I still have a little Christmas shopping to do and believe it or not, my cards are not in the mail yet.  They may be New Year cards!

Sangria is on.  The terrace awaits.  Thanks for dropping by....


  1. It all looks very beautiful. Have a wonderful time.

    Love Chrissie x

  2. Wow, you have actually blogged again! Your little paradise looks really great, love all the poinsettias. Have fun with the BBQ! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Absolutely stunning. Love all of the plants that complement the color in the tile of your new BarBQ. What a wonderful photo. You even decorated the little tree with baubles and trinkets. I have to agree that this year disappeared so rapidly. Little done on my end but have big hopes that I'll have the time to create and do fun projects in 2014. No family for Christmas this year so we'll spend the holiday with close friends who are family to us. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, Donna.

    Love hugs,

  4. Your patio is absolutely beautiful with the addition of your new gorgeous grill. Enjoy. Happy Holidays.

  5. Oh, Donna, how inviting that looks!! Especially with the poinsettias! I am so behind, I haven't even begun my cards, but I will get there. And then? A very low-key holiday for us. Just one of those years.... Hope yours is festive and memorable!

  6. Donna I'm sure you're more than up to the task. What a beautiful home you have filled with such beauty, vibrant colors and you're wonderful art. Wishing you the happiest of holidays surrounded by the people you love.


  7. Gorgeous Barbeque, garden and wall Donna! Looks like a lovely place to enjoy some Sangria too. ~Diane
