|Dianne Cage: Santa, beautiful autumn, grilled duck breast|
Let's all sing.
"Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus Lane." la la la la la la do do to do. do do do, What fun we are going to have! Did you know Gene Autry wrote that song? He was in the Rose Parade, riding his beautiful horse and was next to last in the line up, Santa and his reindeer being last. He said all he could here were the children shouting "Here Comes Santa Claus!" It is one of my favorite Christmas songs. The Joy of December. Let's all try and remember what this wonderful time of the year is all about and enjoy.
I think this was one of the most beautiful autumns we have ever had. What makes our splashes of color so spectacular is having the contrast color of the dark green of our magnolia and pine trees. The lushness of the greens is an amazing contrast with the reds, yellows and oranges. One thing, I know, that has made a big difference in our vivid color, are the many maples that have become so popular, in our area and are available in our local nurseries. We had more fun driving around just leaf and tree peeping. Next year, I am going to list some of our favorite sightings.
