Winter Basket

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.

From my archives:

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

treasures stored
here and there
homemade chapbooks

books on the shelf
supported by each other
kindness of friends

new day
in my older life
sun on evergreens
