Lisa (Creative Exchange) writes of spending that extra hour this weekend being thankful for the possibilities. I admit that I spent it sleeping! However, I did make mental plans last night for this week....our youngest son and his fiancee' will be here Friday for a friend's wedding, and I need to whip my house into shape! I have done the absolute minimum since my surgery 7 weeks ago. No more excuses. But I did wander outside in the 20-degree morning to capture some frosty leaves. This image is of one of our baby redwood dogwood shrubs. (According to the nursery tag, these shrubs are supposed to have flowers in November; I'll believe it when I see it!) Do stop by Lisa's beautiful meme and see the fabulous photos.
