This direct quote from Melanie in Gone with the Wind sums up what Christmas means for me.
I wrote last year about our little nativity scene that we put up under our Douglas fir each year.
Yesterday I was out weeding, enjoying the gorgeous weather we are having and wishing it would rain. My succulent garden has been, not so much neglected as, “left to do its thang” this last wee while. However, on closer inspection I noticed that the babe in the manager wasn’t the only baby in my garden. My succulents were having babies left right and center – quite literally!
And the babies are more like teenagers having nearly caught up with their parents.
