Mother Nature Decorates for the Holidays

I have not been feeling very festive this year and have done only the most minimal of decorating. I have not put up any outside lights and my giant outdoor wreath remains in the storage unit. But I have just noticed that Mother Nature has done some decorating for me. As I have mentioned in the past, there are an enormous amount of weedy vines growing everywhere and the pine tree in no exception. The current cold snap has killed off much of the vines (don't worry, they'll be back in the summer) and have turned them red.
The tree looks very festive and so does the ground around the house.

mother nature does do a fine job of decorating. I've cut back on my decorating but not because I'm not feeling festive it's more of a "just enjoying the season" kind of thing. I'm putting no pressure on myself this year and I'm enjoying it immensely

I don't care much for decorating either--it's all so much work. I still do it for the kids though. Ugh.

Merry Christmas to you!
