It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Well, relatively speaking. I personally like spring when the garden is reawakening from winter, the birds start their nest building and everything seems to "green up". But, given that Christmas is a favorite of many, I'll digress and stick with the cliché. I'll also send you to Christmas's past (and present) to reiterate my holiday thoughts in my native plant garden.

2011 In the Wildlife Garden, Naughty or Nice?

2010 Choose a Gift FOR Nature

My Christmas card choice this year is Dogfennel shown in the photo above. I was taken with just how much it looked like a fir tree.

May 2013 bring us a more environmentally conscious government who will care more about our quality of life over how much money they can gain to "grow" the county. New development with the current excess housing availability makes no sense. Why not work through the current inventory and develop that which has ALREADY been approved. THAT will benefit the EXISTING taxpayers. Don't green flag that which is not needed thus making us pay for infrastructure that is only necessary because our leaders refuse to stop the insanity.

I wish each and every one a blessed and happy holiday.
