it’s B-A-A-A-C-K!
and I’m glad…

Even though the small amount of snow outside on the trees resembles nothing more than a cotton bush


I welcome it!

We’re back in the sweater saddle! Even though it has been below 40degrees, even though most people in North America would consider THAT Cold, even though I have been living in my Long Johns or something similar when indoors (around this time of the winter, I think your average Midwest person resembles a gnarly character in a High Plains movie, where we’re all stuck in the cabin unable to do our laundry) – it hasn’t seemed like Winter to me.

My wonderful neighbor added to this illusion by gifting me with a Cactus for Christmas. I added this lovely succulent to the mix.


Isn’t this a lovely Color? The Teal Tonals here make me sing with delight! I had a garden once that had a little warm micro-clime area on a south-facing wall. I loaded the bed up with silver-bluegreen perrenials and succulents. These are perhaps my favorite plants of all…

Oh. There’s yarn in the picture too! I am still on a little hat bender and we shall see what we shall see…
