Decorated for the Holidays

On Sunday, the day after the snow and the day before the torrential rain, I slogged through the dreary rain on my usual round of Sunday errands: the library, the QFC on Broadway (for their fabulous bacon and croissants), the dog food store (Mud Bay), Rite-Aid (for bubble bath). Alas, the Farmer's Market is over for the year so that's no longer part of my round. The last stop is always the garden and I was surprised to see that someone had twined a garland of cedar branches along the metal fence. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. I like it that the garden has that festive touch but putting a garland on a garden fence seems a bit like bringing coals to Newcastle. In the picture, those yellow spots on the plant to the left are roses, still on the rose bush.
