T’is the season… frasier fir  

The most wonderful time of the year. frasier fir   

 Except ~the weather outside is frightful


and it won’t let me play in my garden.

Visit Lisa’s Chaos to see some great macro photos!


  1. Virtual gardening for a few months. I love the first photo. It says it all.

  2. Hi Teresa~~ Man these photos sure look a lot like Christmas! Very nice.

  3. Love that first shot! over here most malls are already decorated with Christmas trees and decorations but of course not with real tree!

  4. Beautiful shots and words..wonderful..I can even smell the pine!! MMMMMMmmmmmm, Sarah

  5. Your photos make we want to put up the Christmas tree right this minute. Lovely.

  6. It is a magical time of year, isn’t it?

  7. your second shot…. I wish I could remember the name of that kind of tree is my favorite, it is beautiful! Yeah for Xmas!

  8. I bought two fresh frasier firs last week, one for indoors and one for outdoor. The outdoor one is up and decorated with lights. I am frustrated about the indoor one. We are waiting for a man to come paint my great room ceiling, and I realized I can’t decorate until he is finished. I thought he was coming today, but he hasn’t come, hasn’t returned my call. Hmmm! I enjoyed this post – the photos are beautiful!

  9. Heavens above, it’s not Christmas already, is it? LOL!

    That first one is a nice shot. Like the way the tree is in focus and the bauble is blurred!

  10. I want to take ornament photos everyday this coming month, but fear people would get bored. :) Looks like you’re ready!

  11. so christmas macro…awesome shots…

  12. Your photos are magical Teresa! I wish I could play outside too but everyone keeps telling me the cold months make the spring sweeter. I’m trying to buy into that! I love macro shots so I’ll have to check out the link.

  13. I love your macro shots!!! Christmas already? Well, it is now December. Yes, the season of magic has begun.
