Happy December!



Have you noticed that while the air gets crisper the sunshine gets brighter.  Amazing.

Dr. Gooch is out raking our baby lawn.  Hazel is watching Aurora dace with an owl in a red cape in the forest, Miss Aves is off in dreamy dreamland, and the oldies are off at school.  Amazing.

There was frost slush on the car this morning.  It is December.  That makes this harvest yesterday that much sweeter.  Tender lettuce, sweet, earthy beets, carnival carrots, and plump crisp sweet peas.  Amazing.

Our tree was toddler-trimmed last night.  The Cicada Cottage itself is red and green.  We've decided to follow her lead and go traditional with this years hue.  The tree?  Amazing.

I am most amazed at those succulent veggies! Eat a snap pea for me.
