. . .all through garden. . .
and House. . .
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care,
I see that St. Nicholas has already been there. (Saving time I guess, starting early)
Out in the garden there rose such a chatter,
I jumped to the window to see what was the matter.
What did my wondering eyes behold?
An Alberta Spruce (Picea glauca), decked all in gold.
I grabbed up my camera and ran to the garden,
I snapped and I snapped until caught by the warden.
After lunch I sat down all excited to share, the wonderful beauty I’d stumbled on there.
Juniper and holly were dressed up so jolly,
I almost thought other decor was just folly.
Good thing I changed my mind. I’m really enjoying decorating this year!
Also, we finally heard from Jesse and he sounds good, is busy all day (and all night too sometimes) He reports has recently caught the Terry Pratchett bug and I don’t believe that he will ever recover from it.
Hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas, full of joy and meaning, and no excess. Well maybe a little excess. In moderation.
