Today's Flowers: May Christmas Decorate Itself for You

IMG 0021


The pine cone is to Christmastime what the rose is to Valentine's Day--but you don't have to wait for them to come your way; they are there for the taking. Which is part of why I love them. Love and be loved. And may Christmas decorate itself for you.

  7. Nicely put, Sandy. Our property is full of pine trees, one day I picked a few of the pine cones and made a desk Christmas tree out of them with lights and everything. very pretty!

  8. I wish Christmas would decorate itself sometimes. No more dragging those boxes out of the attic and untwisting those lights.

  9. That's a great shot of the pine cone. I'm letting Christmas decorate itself more and more as I do less and less.

  20. Pinecones..always a part of my seasonal display! Roses are close to my heart so I combine pinecones and roses with fresh pine greenery for my indoor arrangements.

  29. I love this! In a macro view like this, it almost looks metallic. Or anyway, not like a pine cone. And the blue background? Brilliant.

  30. What is the white stuff, did you spray glitter on it?

    I keep a keep pine cones in my room in school, and the kids only ask me for them.

  35. Thank you for the 'earthy' reminder. I am one who usually comes home from a walk this time of year with pockets bulging with pinecones feeling wealthy.
    Happy day!

  36. Sandy: How cute, I would have had a hard time guessing a pine cone.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sandy this is a stunning perspective. I just love it. You have such a wonderful eye.

  39. That is one close shot! And, I too, love the cinnamon scented ones too! I have collected them in our local mountains in the past. Now I wish I had gotten out and done that this year...too late now, at least for Christmas. Beautiful post!
