christmas tree with sea shells





I wonder if people in other parts of the world share plants with their neighbors. I'm guessing that of course they must. my neighbor has an especially green thumb and is always offering me extra plants that seem to sprout up out of no where all around his yard. earlier this fall I was over his house digging up a crepe myrtle when he offered me this little christmas tree as well. I thought I would plant it in this pot & keep it by my door so I could look at it all winter. it turned out that today it was casting lovely shadows as well. if you would like to see more illustrated shadows please go check out hey harriet's shadow shot sunday over here.
happy sunday everyone!

Here unfortunately we don't share plants with our neighbors.
Everyone remains shut up in his apartment and at the condominiun meetings often furious arguments break out!!!!!

I don't share plants with my neighbours. I don't really have any to share. I could give my neighbours bunches of my weeds but I don't think they'd appreciate them. One of my neighbours always gives me homemade jam. Oodles of it. My pantry is filled with bottles of every type of jam imaginable. I can't keep up with it all! I now have enough to start my own market stall!

Great festive shadow shot. My fave Xmas trees are live potted ones. Much nicer than the plastic ones :)

Very, very nice! And how nice to have such a good neighbor! In the past I have always had neighbors to share things with. These days there is only one. It's a good feeling to share.

What a darling plant! We swap plants all of the time! If it doesn't grow in our yards we swap it with each other....if it still doesn't work, we always find someone that wants it!!

Poor lil tree. Definitely an A+ for effort. :-)

I'm friendly with my neighbors on the same floor but I won't call them friends, nor do I want them to be.

It's hard enough living in close quarters without having people minding your business. So cordial and friendly is perfectly fine for me.

It looks like a little redwood tree, maybe. Lucky you to have a gardening neighbor. Good neighbors are fabulous blessings. Nice shot for Shadow Sunday.
