  1. What beautiful sites you see out your window in December. Normally this time of the year all you would see out my windows would be white snow with the trees sticking out. lol This year however it is all brown. Temps are freezing but the little snow we have rec’d has left. Very strange year but I am not complaining…yet. lol
    Thank you for all the joy you have spread to us through Dales beautiful garden. I know she is proudly looking down on all you are doing.
    Merry Christmas and a blessed 2012 to you and yours!!!
    Big Hugs!

    So wonderful for you that all of this is still growing! So nice to be able to turn to these photos and dream of the warm weather’s return in a few months here in N. Texas. By February we will be planting, but I can feel the warmth from your gardens for now.

    Thanks for continuing to share this all in Dale’s memory!

    Have the best of holidays!

  9. Thank you for all of the wonderful photos over the past few months. I have enjoyed them very much. Your sister would be so touched by the beauty that you have created which was inspired by her life.

    Just to keep you up to date on our Hospice-we had our first open house, craft and bake sale. We have acquired a beautiful old building which used to be a convent. After it is renovated it will be such a lovely warm place for those who need to be there. The community has been so generous with their donations and we have far surpassed what we expected in monetary gifts.

    Best wishes to you and your family.
