Weekend Reflections from Hammond

My husband and I stopped off in Hammond, LA on our way home for a round of golf. This course is called Carter Plantation and it's a beautiful place to play.

It's quite cold here this weekend - it even snowed yesterday! It's all gone now, but I don't think I'll be getting in any golf right now. But I have good memories of last weekend's round.

The Roosevelt Hotel

The Roosevelt is New Orlean's grandest old hotel. It was closed for some time but has recently re-opened under the management of Waldorf-Astoria. My husband and I stopped by The Sazerac for drinks one evening. Our breath was taken away by the decorations in the foyer. All the lights and mirrors made it appear that the lobby had been transformed into an endless winter wonderland. Gorgeous!

Here's wishing you a very happy weekend!

Christmas Palms

Nothing beats Christmas lights on a palm tree! Every city should have some of these.

Check back tomorrow for some even more spectacular decorations in New Orleans.

Thanksgiving Hibiscus

My husband and I spent Thanksgiving with my Auntie in New Orleans. She has a beautiful home in the garden district with a magnificent garden. I just love these gorgeous hibiscus flowers and there were plenty still in bloom for the holiday.

I'll be sharing a few other photos from the Big Easy this week!

Over My Shoulder

I haven't seen the bluebirds in my backyard lately, I guess they made the wise decision not to move into my birdhouse. They would have just been pestered by the squirrels. I did get a few good shots of them while they were around though. Just look at those beautiful wings. Lovely!

Reflections from Number 12

Number 12 is my absolute favorite hole on the Colonial Course. It's beautiful in any season and I usually do pretty well on it as well!

Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving. I am not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. Click here to see more weekend reflections.
