Thousands of wide-eyed spectators lined our downtown streets last Friday evening as the jolly old guy himself made his official appearance to northeast Michigan.
Unfortunately I did not go.
From all news accounts, I missed a pretty decent parade. For years, our Christmas parade has always been held the Friday after Thanksgiving during the daytime. I’ve never been able to attend as I've always worked that day. Now the parade is at night and is receiving enthusiastic reviews, but I’ve grown accustomed to not attending. Though I mentioned going to DH, when the time came, we both decided to sit it out.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
