Wishing you the joy and peace of the season!
The plantings in front of our house had grown so large that people passing by could barely see the 1898 stone cottage. Finally this fall we had a landscaper draw up a plan and tame the overgrown bushes. We can see the house again! So we got some over-sized balls and decorated for Christmas for the first time many years.
If you wonder, no, we are not snowed in. We no longer use the door that you see; it leads into our bedroom! The "new" door (from 1970) is just outside of the picture at the left. (We moved into the house on Christmas Eve of 1967.)
