As you can see, the basket Karl created with spruce tree branches that were pruned, and decorations from past years, is now outside. The snow today gives the arrangement new life. You can see snow on the wood path Karl built years ago, and gardens where lilies and other plants grow. Our red poinsettia in the house, from Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly in town, is still beautiful. Our Christmas cactus has many buds and is on the table with the poinsettia. I think we will rename the cactus – February cactus? Karl took the photo this afternoon.
A quiet Saturday. Karl is an engineer and is working on a project. I have been reading for hours today in my study.
snowflakes fall all day
