It's happened again, I got finagled into doing a 3-day Christmas marathon. I swear, never again. I'm tired, queasy and ready to hide in bed all day, but there's laundry to do, house to clean, and kids to feed and entertain. (I could be a bad mother, and allow them to sequester themselves in their rooms all day with their new electronic games, but I won't.)
I'm still waiting for the birds to discover my new heated birdbath.
So while I'm waiting for the birds to show up, I'll be delving into a book a should I have read a long time ago, Amy Stewart's "Wicked Plants." I couldn't resist peeking at it just after I opened it, and it's already sucked me in. I hope everyone finds the time this week between Christmas and New Year's to curl up with a good gardening book and dream winter garden dreams.
