My JOYFUL REFLECTIONS header picture is a picture taken on 10/20/16 on our visit to the Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina. I had never seen so many different colors of Poinsettias before... These HOT Pink ones were gorgeous.

Welcome December

Poinsettia Tree at Biltmore (11/20/16)
Dear Friends,  I thought I'd stop by and say HELLO... George and I are doing fine --and just came home from visiting George's son and family in Florida for Thanksgiving..

On the road to Florida,  we stopped by the Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville,  North Carolina,  to take some Christmas pictures.    I wanted some new pictures for my December headers for my blogs,  for Google+ and for Facebook...

We enjoyed walking through the Conservatory ---and I really enjoyed seeing all kinds of different  sizes and shapes and colors of POINSETTIAS.  My header (above) is  a picture of some of the brightest hot pink Poinsettias I have ever seen.

Today,  I'll share with you a few more pictures taken on that day (11/20/16) at Biltmore.  You can click on the pictures for enlargements.

Have you done your Christmas Decorating yet?  Many of my friends have --but I'm just getting started with mine...    Do you like Poinsettias?  I do ---and a good friend sends us a gorgeous Poinsettia for our home each December..

Hope all of you will have a blessed December.

Dear Friends,  To say I am struggling now is an understatement... Life is just hitting me in the face --and I have to find ways to decide what I can do and what I cannot do...  There's just never enough time in the day anymore, and I constantly feel overwhelmed.... Guess I need to realize that I'm slowing down in my OLD AGE... ha.. AND---I need to take time to realize what is important to me at this time and what is not.  There are just so many things in this life that I want to do and see.

Anyhow---as much as I love blogging and love ALL of you,   and even though I have tons of pictures I haven't shown yet,  I just feel as if I HAVE to take a break for a little while...  I'll be back soon I'm sure.   In the meantime,  have a great Thanksgiving...

God's Blessings on ALL of you.
