It is quiet in the garden as we are in the holiday season. The plants seem asleep with little change, but I know the roots are working below the surface. The birds continue to be fed and watered. The indoor plants keep reaching for the low sunlight. Hopes of gardening items dance in this gardener's head as Santa's visit draws near.
Many of the trees and shrubs in our area still have leaves that were freeze dried in place at the beginning of November. Windy days seem more like autumn with leaves blowing down the street. We've had very little snow and just a touch of rain. While not carrying our shower water out at this time of year, we continue to catch the water we run to heat water for the dishes and that goes outside to the bird baths or around some plants.
Holding off on the garden catalogs and plans for next season until the Christmas festivities pass. The December tour photos are coming soon. Hope you are well.
