It's December, and it is COLD outside
and I have blankets on,
and am wearing sweaters
and when I go outside I find myself donning scarfs, hats, mittens and a very warm coat
but I am dreaming today
of warmer days to come
of ripe things
and the farm in spring and summer..
I can NOT help but day dream at lunch time..
it's something I have done since my girl hood...
now I can do it and BLOG it out for you
you know this will make some excellent day's treat
and maybe we can collect JUST enough to can some jam...
there they are
those snow ball bushes
we will be moving them this spring to their NEW home :)
They are SO lovely!
Yummy apple tree!
I plan on planting MORE trees on the farm THIS spring..
some honey crisp
I adore, simply ADORE hollyhocks,
and am THRILLED they live here at the farm
and I get to live here with them
and simply thankful to have been found
really showing off is this phlox
isn't it a star!
I love her
I don't think she's common AT all...
striking, and easy to get on with
another show stopper...
so glad to have this friend in our new garden!
what a lovely little drama queen...
so nice to meet you
I love it here,
it's cold today
and shall be covered all in a blanket of white for months to come...
I know THIS is preparing to bound up from beneath
and display it's beauty for me to enjoy once again
and in summer
the range of just...
i SO enjoy it
purple in a garden
means happy for me
grey skies won't last all year long..
and we will be ALL the more thrilled for it...
snuggling up with my blessings
and off to read a great book.
Today's book you wonder?
"Five Children and It" by Edith Nesbit
That is my read aloud for Today
Christmas is near DON'T you know?
