Our Beautiful World-December

     Again... November was a bit of a "month to forget"...and I didn't get the last couple of posts for the "Our Beautiful World" blog.  This week (which is about over!) the word is December...what is December like in my part of the world!

December 6, 2013-outside our new condo in Ft. Worth

Icy Holly branches

Winter visitors at our previous country home-2012
    December in North Texas can be very unpredictable...on Wednesday of this week, the high temperature was around 75 degrees...yesterday (Thursday) a front came in and by afternoon the temperature was in the 30's...today (Friday) the high was 25 degrees!
     My first picture was taken this morning outside our new digs!  I don't remember when the second picture of the holly was taken, but is typical of the kind of weather we get in winter...rather fierce but also short-lived...by next week, the weather will be in the 50s again!
     And the last picture is our little deer friends who would visit us frequently all year 'round...although I love watching them..I am looking forward to being able to grow flowers in pots outside!  The little rascals would eat every tender green plant we would try to grow!!!1

  3. i was wondering how the weather was affecting you . . . the snow is actually beautiful and it sounds like you are enjoying your new home.
    i didn't realize that you had moved though, i must not be paying enough attention~!

    we've had some snow and some incredibly cold temps over the last few days. waking up to a single digit on the thermometer . . . brrrr. i think winter has arrived.
