The first year we were here, our Calliandra bloomed but every year since, it has gotten frosted and killed back before the bloom had a chance to be admired.
Aren't they just amazing?!
The Christmas Berries are all red, too! All signs of Christmas. In spite of how I feel, the plans marched forward to a great conclusion on Christmas day.....
Cookies got made, candy consumed, sneezes a-chooed and tissues filled........

Musicians sharing a duet.
We really are having a great time even though 11 of the 15 of us have varying degrees of this virus!
(I am back at the helm after getting a boost of antibiotics from the doctors yesterday for the bronchitis-I am upright again finally!!)
We will be trying to get some family groupings and a whole group picture tomorrow!
