Christmas eve

Fire low. Stuffing made. Turkey still hanging high in the rafters of the cold stable. Cat out for the night. Half moon high in the stars.
Presents under the tree.
Merry Christmas.

  13. I am enjoying your blog so much, from the Niagara area in Canada. While we are so far apart, among passionate gardeners, there are so many similarities! In additon to hearing your gardening stories, I especially like your philosophical discussions!
