Begin Winter

Fa la te da. Tis the season for winter descending. Seems there will be a bit of a warming trend to start.

It is on those warm winter days, 50 whole degrees today, that if given the chance, I will wander out into the garden and see if I can find anything interesting.

We got lucky in the interesting department. This place came with a real garden folly. I have added more folly since.

I have also been adding the evergreen Under Garden of winter interest. Without it, the garden would be completely barren from November to near the first of April. That is five whole months. That just isn't acceptable. I had to take action.

Folly comes in many sizes. It takes on a more visible role in the barren time of winter.

The baby evergreens are slowly catching up.

On the first day of winter Miss Collar said to me, "Fa la la la la. Finally, it's warm enough to go out." Merry Christmas everyone.

Merry Christmas to you, Miss Collar and the rest of the crew.

Merry Christmas to you and happy winter solstice. Spring is coming. Thank you for the gift of your ruminations and photographs throughout the year. They are very much appreciated. Stay warm and dry up on your mountain.

Chris, I know you have a keen eye for photography. May I suggest one for a New Year: a single lit candle standing in that old fireplace, in the fading light of day?
Best wishes to you for the coming year.
