Happy Holidays!

crab apple tree

This gnarly old apple tree down the lane clings to its fruit as if to help us celebrate this joyous season. When I say ‘Happy Holidays’, it is not to avoid ‘Merry Christmas’, which I spread about freely. It is, rather, a way of including all of the ways of celebrating the return of the light and, lets face it, extends backward to Thanksgiving and forward to New Years. For someone like me, who tends to get a bit overwhelmed by all of the goings-on this time of year, lumping it all together in one big bundle of love works. I hope you don’t mind.

    Jenni~With kids it’s even more hectic, but also more fun. Ours are grown, but still fun to have around.

    Peter~What?!…5 more days of Christmas? Are there special celebrations attached to each of the days of Christmas?

    Alison~Yep, there really is such a thing as too much of a good thing (but not gardening).
