Happy Holidays 2014

Dateline: December 19, 2014*

I’ve done Christmas theme posts in the past including In the Wildlife Garden, Naughty or Nice?(2011), Revising the 12 Days of Christmas(2012-NPWG),  The Color of Christmas in the Garden (2013), A Berry Merry Christmas (2010) to name some. In keeping with what has become a tradition of sorts, this year will be no different. Follow me through my garden and have a Merry Christmas 2014!
