Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
Magnolias in our woods around our house. They were there naturally. In the yard, Azaleas and Gardenias. I just love the smell of the Gardenias. It isn't a flower but when the orange tree is blooming, it smells heavenly.
We have a few different flowers and trees around our yard. As for the trees, in the front yard we have this humungus Hawiian Hibiscus, in the side yard, we have a lemon tree and a flourishing lime tree that bears more limes than we care to have...give many away and tell the neighbors to come pick and help yourself. On the other side of the house it's several pink and yellow hibiscus.
In the back around our lanai we have boganvillas. A couple years ago, we planted several japanese holly bushes hoping to be able to pick the red holly berry branches for inside holiday decoration, but it hasn't happened yet. There are the usual palm trees scattered here and there..
Oh, yes, we do have a beautiful gardenia bush mixed with the boganvilla's that is full of buds right now. They should be in bloom soon.
