    All of my children have gone home and it is late but I thought I would click onto GPOD. What a wonderful treat, thanks again Jeff for the Christmas beauty and hope you have a lovely Christmas.
    Meander your display is magnificent ! and I love your wreaths Cherry.
    Thank you everyone for a year of so much beauty and Merry Christmas to you and your
    family Michelle. Looking forward to seeing you at the NWFG show again.

    Good habits are hard to break....even today on Christmas morning, after I kissed and hugged my husband, I fired up the laptop and checked gpod as my first click of the morning. Cherry, you need to do a video tutorial of making those wonderful wreaths with all natural greens. I love them.
    Warmest wishes to all of our gpod family for a lovely Christmas day and lots of fun gardening throughout 2015!

    Thanks for compiling these, Jeff. Very Cool. You're right, Michaele. Why clean up after the Christmas Eve party when there are garden photos to check? Love your verdigris sculpture with the bow, and Cherry, your wreaths are stunning!
    Merry Christmas!

    Gorgeous wreaths, Cherry! And everyone else's decorations are beautiful and creative too! Michaele your horse is perfect, as is his background! Is this how it normally looks? Or did you add him and/or the branches to create this colourful Christmas scene?

      GrannyMay, I usually take a picture of the statue that faces away from the house because the daylilies are seen from that angle. However, my daughter suggested capturing some of the front entry as the backdrop and she was right, it looked very festive. I had poked some cut berry laden holly branches and nandina 'Fire Power' into the blue spruce to add some additional color for the holiday season.

      1. GrannyMay 12/25/2014

        Yes, your daughter was right! And the added touches of red do give it all that Christmas cheer.

    Yes, these photos are even better than yesterdays! Gorgeous wreaths, Cherry. Love the filagree horse, as usual. Beautiful scenes from beautiful people. Thank you all and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you in Feb. at the NF&GS. Oh, and that twig wreath may be a bear to make but it is beautiful. Cherry and Jeff need to let us in on their secrets!

    I really didn't

    Oops! I really didn't expect a GPOD today and simply decided to check the email after all the children and grandchildren left, Santa Jeff - many thanks for the gorgeous pictures. Michaele your decorated entry is stunning, And Cherry - I second the request for an online lesson in making these absolutely gorgeous wreaths. Thank you all, continue to enjoy the holidays- you certainly spread the joy.

    i hope everyone's christmas was Merry and Bright! time here today to clear out ghosts of Christmas past, i have more boxes and papers to bundle for the recycle center than i thought could be possible. . Cherry's wreaths are spectacular, she needs a youtube channel to demonstrate her skills

    1. perenniallycrazy 12/27/2014

      Me on Youtube - YIKES and LOL!

      I will see what I can do about a tutorial for those who are interested as long as Jeff is with me on this one. (Back at ya!)
