A few weeks ago I visited Leu Gardens with my youngest daughter, oldest daughter, and three of my grandsons. I took a lot of autumn photos, including the decorations at the Leu House, a Victorian era museum home.
Today I went back with my two youngest daughters to meet up with a sweet friend and her two youngest daughters. The house is decorated for Christmas now!

|The kitchen with pine tree trim
on the curtain tops.
|This is the same hall table as the photo with the
orange-brown art glass in my autumn post.
I love the shadows from the natural light
coming from the window.
|Magnolias on the Christmas tree
in the master bedroom –
we’re in the south, of course!
|Our friends are on the right.|
|Lake Rowena with visitor center in background.|
|I love the crisscross pattern of the branches.|
|Fiber textures on a rotting (bamboo?) stalk|
|This rose reminds me of
a peppermint candy cane.
|In the butterfly garden|
|Three jolly girls|
|Can you see them now in the bamboo grove?|
|Jessica and I are very old and dear friends
from our former home school co-op.
We have a lot in common,
including a passion for history
and a bunch of daughters.
(She has four, I have seven.)
Apparently we also both love purple shirts.
|I love the interesting pattern of these leaves!|
