But today! It's barely cool. The sun is shining. I'm living in WELLINGTON. I was on my front porch admiring my Halloween decorations and taking pictures to show The Little Boy who's still at sleep-away school. I heard the geese, as I often do. We are a waterfront community, after all. I snapped a pic just as they were leaving.
This poor little Christmas tree. What Christmas tree, you ask? It's hidden in this pot. I've written before about the flock that covered it last Christmas. How it has been trying for almost a year to slough off that flock. Here he is, almost ready for his season, and this MUM that was only a snippet from my neighbor-friend's garden is positively DWARFING. him. It's trying to steal the spotlight! How did it get so huge? It's a mum, for crying out loud. If it wasn't about to bloom I would cut off its head. But it better get around to it soon because Christmas is right around the corner and I'm not letting any old mum steal my poor little scotch pine's glory.
