Lisa, do you have a large cooler you could put on the deck to hold your pies, in case it's not convenient to put them in your car?

Nice display VV! And no, I am horrible at identifying plants so I won't even try LOL. Looks like the truffles will be going to someone else.

Merry Christmas to all! Hope your holidays are full of family, friends, and all around good cheer.

How about another photo or two, VV? That's a lovely arrangement, but the bottom left is a bit blurry.

Ha Ha When the fox lived under my school bus there were a number of skulls left behind. Hope I'm correct on that one at least.
Muddy what do you think the three red fluffs are at the bottom? I thought V.'Cardinal Candy' or perhaps sedum (Autumn Joy). How about the orange berries on the top right side? American Bittersweet? Which did you think was Magnolia?

I agree on Winterberry, boxwood and American Holly. Think the candles (though white) are Bayberry? And, too bad rocks don't have species! Any idea on the brown leaves on the bottom left?

This is somewhat like trying to guess each piece of candy in a Russell Stover Assortment without the box top!
