Our Christmas yard display is a little more natural this year.
We didn't cut down the seed heads from the fall plantings.
I think they'll remain up through the winter.
The birds will get to enjoy them longer, too.
And we always use our old sleds as part of our displays,
they seem to blend in with landscape.
We've never used blowmolds or inflatables in the yard...
...always preferring just lights and a few decorative items.
But this year, we decided we would use less lights.
Normally, Dan decorates all of the shrubs and foundational plantings
with tiny white lights, sometimes some red.
We still used some lights, but limited them this year to
the garlands on the house and fence and just a few accent bushes.
Dan said he used half of what he did last year.
You'd never know any different.
I can still say it's a beautiful display.
He always does a great job.
Now if it would just snow a bit
I could get some great landscape photography happening on this end.
But, today we are at an unseasonable 68 degrees, and there is no snow on the radar.
I think it's gonna be a Green Christmas.
