Merry Christmas!

Hemerocallis (Daylily)

We’re planning a Merry Christmas at our home this weekend with two of my sisters not only joining us, but bringing Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings. The garden will be at the mercy of 11°F or 9°F, depending who you ask.

Sending you Season’s Greetings and Best Wishes for Courage, Resilience and Peace!

A Christmas Card

Front of card

Since I was a child I have loved the custom of sending Christmas cards.

This year it seemed especially important to extend this tradition, to reach out to say hello to a few family and friends and wish them “Peace and Good Health In The Coming Year.”

Each holiday season I think I should design and send out cards featuring something from my garden, but many Christmases have come and gone without that happening—until this year, 2020.

I used a watercolor effect on a photo from an “In A Vase On Monday” arrangement for the cover. Inside the card opposite the message, I used the actual image.


For the back I chose a gladiolus, lilies and a dahlia in holiday colors.


I am sharing the card today to send you and yours traditional wishes for the season.

Peace and Good Health In The Coming Year
