The following is a verse from my children's story "The Moonlight Garden" about a stroll through a flower garden bathed in moonlight -
Clumps of white alyssum, swirling around our feet in waves of glowing mist, guide us down the garden path. The smell of sweet cotton candy floats up to greet us.My alyssum is still blooming, although a bit more buried in leaves than when I took this photo. I have not had a hard frost yet at my house despite some morning temperatures in the high 20's.
This weekend begins my marathon month of wreath making. I've been "grooming" my niece for the past few years on how to make them and she will be helping me this year. Besides selling them at our family Christmas tree farm, we have signed up for a craft show. She's 10 yrs old and very excited at the prospect of earning her own money.
Stay warm and enjoy the busy holiday season coming up!
