There is a local nursery - Behnke's - that has been around for ages. During the Christmas holiday season, a favorite thing I do is visit to see the colorful poinsettias...and of course, also, buy a few assorted plants. This year, I was particularly eager to go because I wanted to get a photo to paint in Waterlogue.
Today, I went and as evidenced above, you can see I was not disappointed. Not. At. All.
Despite their charm, I didn't buy any of the colorful poinsettias (I don't know why) - but I did buy one that has variegated flowers and also a bloomin' Christmas cactus. More importantly, I enjoyed meandering through the greenhouses, looking at all the beautiful Christmas florals and other lush plants, wandering through the Christmas shoppe (I bought some fun ribbon and an ornament) and smelling the live Christmas trees, wreaths, and swags.
Just taking a break from the season's hustle and bustle and relaxing in Mother Nature's contribution. Do you have a favorite place to go to take a break during this busy time of year?
Only 8 days til' Christmas! Where does the time go?
