Our Christmas Poinsettia

Our Christmas Poinsettia via Instagram

This is a #poinsettia from last Christmas and @drrosannewelch has done a great job of shepherding it through the year. It just started turning red just in time for #christmas.

I think the secret is to not over water it during the summer months. It is a southwestern plant and used to dry spells until the winter rains come.

The day after a rainy Thanksgiving the clouds cleared away and the sun shone through. It was still windy and chilly but gorgeously clear.

This was the spot for our after-Thanksgiving Day meal. Amazing food and I loved the interior decoration. Up close you can tell the lampshades are made of layers of corrugated cardboard. Cool!

Yucca Flowers

Out on our yearly shopping trip on our way to my sister’s house in Palm Springs for Thanksgiving, I spotted these yucca flowers and I was able to get nice and close to them. Such lovely plants.

Holiday Gift Guide 2019 27: Rev Up Your Home With This Red Chevy Shower Curtain and More! [For Sale]

We have an old-fashioned cruise night at least once a month here in Van Nuys. The boulevard was once the center of the car scene in Los Angeles and it is a pleasure to see the hotrods, lowrider and vintage cars gather under the street lights once more. This Red Chevy was striking as it sat parked along the street and its amazing restoration shines out as brightly as the polish on its finish. — Douglas
