Trusting you are enjoying the festive season  and wishing you a healthy joyful new year.


Take a look what I found in the garden for xmas.

 



It is a member of the Dandelion family. 
The seeds are large, about the size of a tennis ball.

A little glitter added to the festive season, but the
natural glitter above is also pretty.. 




I picked them the beginning of December and they are
still exactly the same.

That must be because I keep them out of a draft 
and nobody touches them.

Erica dear,
Those dandilion cousin's are prettier!! Hard to believe they would remain like that for so long!
Beautiful!
Thank you for stopping by and visiting!
I hadn't thought about the spam thing until three days ago when someone started putting a bunch on a very OLD post. I may have to try that in order to stop that too. Thank you for the idea!
I hope your having a wonderfully blessed day dear.
Debi xo

It is nice to have such lovely blogs to visit and thank you for the New Year wishes.

Yes Tom. Your photos are really stunning. I have been admiring them for years (honest).

Hi to Dirty Girl too. I like that broken pot - anyway - that plant can breathe now.

greetings

Hello Erica, I've been out of commission for a while and just wanted to tell you how fun it's been to go over some of your back posts. I always learn so much, seeing your excellent photos of aloes in the garden and in their natural habitat, and with precise identification and descriptions. I always recommend your site for an aloes education.
