Happy Winter Solstice

branches

Here in the Northern hemisphere, yesterday was winter solstice. So, like everything this year, my Winter Solstice Greeting is a little late. Now that the shortest day of the year has passed, we can all hopefully notice and appreciate those increasing minutes of day light.

Spring is still a long way off, but we’re already turning our brains towards the garden  (perhaps as a wet coast rain coping strategy). The 2015 West Coast Seeds catalog arrived a few days ago and I will soon start to begin to decide what to plant this year. The Man has just announced his plans to xeriscape the back lawn areas, which I strongly support. I have plans to clear out a few planted areas to create more light and to and make some big changes to parts of the back garden

First though…Wishing you and all yours  a fabulous Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Solstice/Festivus.
