Winter Gardenia

The year ends with a minor horticultural triumph - gardenia buds actually opening on a plant growing in our old, drafty house (instead of predictably dropping off and landing with a sad, heavy thud on the oak table top).

You Go Girls!

Our sweet little hens started laying last weekend. Backyard eggs are the best holiday gift!
Tiramisu anyone?

December Afternoon Sunlight

A quiet moment by the kitchen windows, just waiting for the kettle to boil...

Since we're more of a Solstice household, the red pomegranate (and blooming rhipsalis to its left) is about as festive as it gets around here this time of year.
Also, December is the start of tax season for some of us.....
Just saying, since I so wanted to participate in Jane's holiday tour this week, along with other displays of way more sparkly seasonal revelry.
