Logan's series.


We always go to "Logan's Trading Company" for our Christmas trees and poinsettias. It is a converted railway station.
Wonderful, Christmassy place!


1) Entrance




2) Opening to the Christmas section.
(The Seaboard Cafe is where we eat lunch.)




3) Decorated tree near the entrance

Still at Logans.



4) One of these trees is now in our living room!




5) As is one of these poinsettias.
(This is just a small portion of all the poinsettias they have.)

A few local shots.

The following three were taken at our closest small strip mall practically in walking distance of where we live.



1) Entrance sign, with a seasonal topper.




2) Large wreath against a cloudy sky.




3) Went back a day later when the sky was clear!
(Wow. What a difference!)
