Christmas Day 2012

Christmas Day. The garden has a blanket of leaves to keep it warm and composted through the winter. Clematis is dried and brown.  I should of cut it off this fall but I like the look of it.  Garlic Chives in a bed of leaves.  Little boogers pop up everywhere.

Now is the waiting game for spring.  Seed catalogs already have a bunch of circled choices.  I love seed catalogs.

On another note: My Desert Rose produced 176 seeds and the first ten I planted, have 9 little sprouts. I believe that all 10 will make it. I will take pictures soon.

Merry Christmas.

Sorry about the horrible pictures. I wanted to paste a few shots of Dublin Ireland in the blog.  I just returned from a 3 night work trip. It is a wonderful city.  The Irish people I met along the way were funny, kind, sincere, generous, etc...  I want to return and see the countryside next time.
