Gardening in December

Guess what came in the mail today?
A seed catalog!
Now I have been lost in rapidly growing thoughts about gardening...
...and in December!
Maybe I should just concentrate on garden designs for now.

Silver Moonlight

The frozen rocks crunched under my feet as
I slowly walked towards this view.
The winter evening was cold and tranquil,
and the full moon pored its silvery radiance over
the peaceful, log home and nearby barnyard.

Who would ever want to go back inside?

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays

What is the meaning of exclaiming, "Happy Holidays!"?

The person who hears this remark does not definitely know
if you mean Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year.
If you mean Thanksgiving, just say Thanksgiving!
Or if you mean Christmas, say Christmas.
It isn't difficult to distinguish different holidays.
Celebrate each one to its full extent, and don't mix them up.
Don't be generic, but differentiate, be decisive, be descriptive.
Jesus is the reason for every season.
Merry Christmas!
