Everything outside is white and we have finally lost the front step. The winter solstice is only two days away and marking the event with a full lunar eclipse shall mean that our holiday season week shall be glorious. I do however suffer from the lack of colour during the winter months so much so that I have started a ‘paint the house green’ campaign which is gathering ground with my husband. My succulent garden inside is alleviating some of the deprivation but my veggie garden is looking somewhat dismal. It is elevated and this is as close as I could get this morning. I was forced back by a mammoth parade and resigned to leave it now until the snow melts. Hoping that everyone enjoys wonderfully happy holidays!
