In the bleak mid-winter...
In Mississippi it isn't too bleak. Sure the days are shorter and the weather is unpredictable but there are still plenty of growing things around our house.
The baby doll bed has a healthy crop of hardy succulents and the viney things in the corner will continue to live through the cold in their protected space near the bubbling fountain.
Violas and parsley are doing well in this pot and Mr. M recently planted pansies in a sunny spot.
These red berries look festive by the front door. I think if the birds get hungry enough, the berries will get eaten.
I'm enjoying all the Christmas music on PBS-TV and radio.
What am I reading? I've started a binge on mysteries by Leslie Meier. The setting is Maine. It's not hard to visualize since we visited Maine on our way to PEI a few summers ago.
This two week break is flying by. I'm trying to savor each day and not hurry back to thoughts of work.
How about you? Do you like this time of year?
