PAPERWEIGHTS ON MY WINDOW SILL ABSORB AND REFLECT SUNLIGHT ON A COLD AFTERNOON
Daylight begins its trek toward longer days. Let the violins play and the trumpets blow their sounds of hallelujah! At least that is the feeling of joy I have when the winter solstice turns mother nature in that direction. I dig out my vintage catalogs to peruse. They tell so much about gardens, gardeners, and our culture. It is now the time of ritual -- the time when folks start their annual garden planning with seed catalogs. Hallelujah!
