New neighbors up the street display a Texas-style (and sized) greeting. It must be 6' tall. The first plant they added was a Texas Mountain Laurel 'Silver Peso' (not shown) which is my favorite native plant and a nice addition to the street. They might be Texans--just guessing of course.
A sombrero-topped Santa moving to the beat of maracas is the contribution of our new neighbors next door.
Neighbors on the other side have icicle lights and a Candy Cane walk which makes three houses in a row lighting up the holiday nights, with our house seen in the middle. The twinkle in some of these photos is provided by Picasaweb's Awesome Motion.
I always enjoy the "Feliz Navidad" house two blocks away
Lighted deer are popular in the neighborhood.
Wonder why.....(this was on the same walk at night)
Lighted trees on the double doors and a peek at the tree inside.
Red and white wrapped trees appear at two homes this year
Very wide candy cane stripes...
Oops! Tornado lights...
Ring around the Live Oak
Nativity scenes are very popular in San Antonio and this one is particularly sweet.
We have fun wrapping our trees in different colors that twinkle, blink, and flash.
New this year are purple lights on the Santa-rita prickly pear. As soon as I saw the purple lights I knew exactly what to do with them!
And it has been so cold that I turned Agave ovatifolia into 'Frosty Blue' by adding snowflake lights to the strand of blue from last year.
Neighbors across the street moved to Iowa and left us their chili lights which I have wrapped around a raffia-covered straw wreath for the front door.
|Merry Christmas Wes and Erin! Try to stay warm.|
Reflections of Christmas in the door glass from the tree inside and wreath outside.
Merry Christmas Y'all!
