Ruby Tuesday celebrates all things red. You can visit all sorts of crimson and rubies at   This week: What's RED on our Christmas tree.
                                 Traditional Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus
               I am from a Danish town in Texas where we put the Danish flag on the Christmas tree.
                  I couldn't have said it better!   Shhhh..He's sleeping.
                       We can only hope, can't we?  Maybe next year.
                      I learned to make these from a wonderful Danish friend here in the U.S.
                                   Merry Christmas from Tropical Texana.  I know this is a garden blog, so I will add that one of  our Christmas trees is alive. It is a Norfolk Island Pine and I'll show the entire tree soon. It usually stays outside in the garden until this time of year. It grows all year long. David :0)


  1. Love your Norfolk Pine ... it's always so lovely having the real thing! I enjoyed all your little red ornaments and decorations, but especially loved the heart-shaped paper creation! I used to do those with my students ... such fun! Thanks for dropping by my blogs this past year and I've so enjoyed dropping in to visit yours, even though I don't always leave a comment, you can be sure I'm checking out all your posts! See you in the new gardening year!

  2. How festive!
    You're right - your main blog photo matches my post :)
    Thanks for taking the time to stop by, even before the links were working - that's real dedication! Have a great day!
