Gardening Tips from Tim Holcomb

Santa with Bag
 
  
Twinkling lights, gatherings with friends and family, and Church musicals seem to be every day events this time of year. We always say, "Take time to smell the roses" and this time of year we know it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season. That being said, be sure to keep Christ in Christmas this year! Share the love of Christ with an often forgotten friend or relative. Surprise a total stranger with a show of kindness. Beautify your lawn and garden and allow the whole neighborhood to enjoy the beauty.
   
Wishing you a Merry Christmas,
 Tim Holcomb

Listen to the wind play a melody for you...

chimes 
You've seen sparkly wind chimes that clink and clank in the breeze. Well, you owe it to yourself to come see and hear the beautiful Corinthian Bells wind chimes. Their design is simple and elegant, however, their sound and tone is unbelievable. The slightest breeze generates a symphony of sounds that soothe the soul.
