I'm sitting in my living room with Lucy the beagle mix at my feet and Foley the greyhound lounging on the dog bed. The tree glows warmly from the dining room (it was the spot that required the fewest houseplants to be relocated), the kitchen is full of cookies (butterscotch gingerbread and "elf eyeballs" so far, more to come tomorrow), and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Happy Holidays to you all and may the new year be filled with peace and joy and beautiful gardens!
I recently completed my doctorate in evolutionary biology at the University of Illinois - Chicago. Now I'm living the rural life in Colorado's Front Range with Too Much Coffee Husband, Foley the greyhound, and Lucy the beagle.
