Welcoming the Winter Solstice …

Winter began just after midnight today, December 22nd, and I like to celebrate the arrival of the new season with candles, bonfire and a toast to longer days and shorter nights ahead. Learn more about the history and science of the Winter Solstice by visiting EarthSky.org.

A Warm Welcome to the Wonders of Winter !

    Thanks for a gorgeous tribute to the Solstice! I woke up this morning with gardening on my mind, and it feels like the perfect day to tell you how grateful I am for all that you give, especially when the days are short and dark.
