Here are a few more December 2006 photos — plants, the house, a pheasant, a sunrise, and some apples.
I've always kept potted plants in our little glassed-in front porch. Right now there are a lot jade plants in there. I can't figure out what happened to the plant pictured above right. I wish I still had it. Its flowers were nice.
For the first 7 years that we lived here, I had my desk and computer down in our entryway, next to the front door of the house. We also had a day bed in that room that guests used when our one guest room was occupied. In 2010, after the loft was converted from attic- to living-space, I moved my home office up there.
I spotted this back yard visitor one day in December 2007. I took several pictures of him, and this is the best one. Above right is another December sunrise we enjoyed as we looked out through our kitchen window.
I happened upon this photo yesterday afternoon. It's the same pile of apples I've showed in other photos, but it was taken in late November. The apples are less frosty and more colorful than in my December photos.
