Parley View Parsnip. . . Christmas lights.

I mentioned in a blog last week that we were putting up some Christmas lights.
Not the all out crazy light show that many homes have
but just a few lights to enjoy the Holidays.
.
There are other home around me but the landscape is very natural and rural.
Small one way streets that follow the hills and valleys. No sidewalks or street lights.
It is very dark around our homes especially in winter.
That is why I keep a few of these fairy lights up all year.
I live on a hill my home is enveloped in darkness.

.


What the front of my home looks like from the half way down my long driveway.
If I went all the way down (goodness it is dark) there is a curve and you look 
through the forest of Paloverde trees to my front door.  That now have Christmas lights
very prettily twinkling  through.
You can see my home better from across the valley or down the street.
.

Just a bit closer
.

Steps up to the front door.
.

Almost to the front door.
.

Looking off to the right of the front door towards the small fountain.
.

I wrapped the branch with lights that rests on top of the fountain.

Here is your pretty to start the week.

I lightened the photos so you could see them.
