Middle school group at Crabtree Mall this morning singing Christmas songs. They were quite good and for the most part they sung the songs straight.
Crabtree has several school performances in the mall this time of year. Always a treat to see and hear.

Iron and bricks.
Love green garlands and red bows on iron railings and brick makes such a nice backdrop for Christmas greenery.
The following were taken at different places around Raleigh

1) Adorned stairs lead from one level to another in a nearby strip mall.


2) Lush wreath securely affixed to a brick wall. They were interspaced all along the outdoor walkway between storefronts.


3) Elegant office doorway.


4) Outdoor restaurant sitting area with decorated railings.


5) Our local grocery store makes it clear we are in the Christmas season!

Cleaning house.
Clearing out all of my remaining Christmas Blossoms photos (except for my traditional final one for Christmas Eve).

1) Christmas section at Target.


2) Mood decorations outside a jewelry store at the mall.


3) A late-blooming, but attractive, storefront window.

Christmas crooner at the mall this afternoon singing carols and playing the clarinet. Added a nice festive touch. I stood and watched for a while.

My traditional night time shot of Crabtree Valley Mall's lit Christmas tree at night rounds out this year's blossoms!
Thanks everyone who contributed to our little thread this year and to those who viewed and commented.
Looking forward already to Christmas Blossoms 2020!
