A Christmas Star and Merry Christmas.

 Christmas Eve is in a few days.

 I made stars, this year
from red alder twigs.

This photo was taken in the blue hour,
And I have blue lights behind 
decorating the gazebo.

I dedicate this star to my oldest sister
Joyce who passed away in September,
from dementia. She was 89.
She enjoyed decorating
 and loved Christmas.
She will be missed.

Alders are a wild shrub that
 turn red here in Winter.
I made some stars and decorated with  
solarlights, dried fruit and flowers.

The stars are made in 3 easy steps.
Cut 5 pieces of twigs, the same length,
placed as follows:




I glued the ends with glue gun
the wired them with floral wire.

Also in the porch.
We have a natural tree,
from the woods, 
smells so nice.

Another star

Some decorations outside.

I used alders to decorate a barrel also.
This photo is from a snowstorm we had in November.

At the front of the house.

My sister Annie photobombed this pic.

We have no snow at the present time.
We did have a snowstorm in November.
Rain has washed away all the snow.

It suppose to change at the end of the week
with a major storm coming our way,
with lots of snow and high winds gusts
over 100km.

Update: The snow  was mixed with rain 
and all melted away

Solar lights on the tower.
They have been there a few yrs
and are still working,
year around.
