Isn't this a gorgeous angel?! She's about two feet tall and is holding a tiny bird in her hands. At the front of her base is the word "PEACE". We dragged her all over the yard this morning trying to get a good photo of her to put on our Christmas cards for this year. DH is working on them now; we shall see what he comes up with! We are fortunate to have all the beautiful and free supplies for decorating for Christmas here on the farm; longleaf and white pines; magnolias; cedars; running cedar; holly trees full of red berries; and dozens of these nandina bushes with their bright red berries in clusters! These berries will dry and keep their shape and color for about six months! It's cold and damp today, but soon we will make wreaths, door sprays, and maybe put up a tree.
