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.

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 25: Along the canal…Nottingham Totes and More! [For Sale]

During our visit to Leeds in 2016 (which we enjoyed immensely) Joseph and I made a special pilgrimage to the Warhammer factory, store, and play area. My only request is that we got to walk back to the train station via the canal that runs through the center of Nottingham. I love the canals of the UK, especially when they go through urban areas. This photo was one of many I took along our walk that day. It illustrates pertly why I love canals so much. Here, in the middle of town, is this tranquil area of water, nature, and people. I wish we had something similar here in California. — Douglas

Up close and personal with these lovely lilies. I think these were a gift one day and I immediately took to creating some closeup photos and later converted one to a watercolor design using an app. I wish I could paint as well as this app does, but I love its excellent conversions. — Douglas

A wonderful place to be on a cold, rainy, day in Dunedin. My glasses and my camera both fogged up when I entered the house, but it gave me a chance to look around quietly and enjoy the atmosphere and plants for a moment. It took a special walk to get out to the Botanic Garden on this trip, but it was well, well, worth it for scenes like this. — Douglas

We have visited Santa Cruz Island many times and always enjoy our time with these endangered foxes and all the other wildlife. We are board members of Friends of the Island Fox (http://islandfox.org) and when we were looking for some new T-shirt designs I came up with this one, based on one of my photos. — Douglas
