When the temperature hit 44 degrees this afternoon, I couldn't resist the temptation to put up outdoor Christmas lights. And Yes, I did get out the ladder to hang the one strand on the eves. Elaine helped by getting some necessary material for me while I was on the ladder and Carolyn happened by to assist as well. She did the stringing on the porch railing to the right of the picture. The red lights are on a Holly bush that also has a few little natural red berries. It is a beautiful bush that holds its green leaves all year. The other lights are on a Japanese Yew. It may not be recognized in the Seward Home Decoration contest but our neighbor lady from across the street bought over a plate of cookies. How much better recognition could one hope for.
