|Make This Holiday Season Cozy|
|Many of us are contemplating exactly how we’ll celebrate the 2020 Holiday Season. We’ll be spending more time at home this year, so take this opportunity to make your nest extra-festive, warm and welcoming. Bring the fresh outdoors inside - with a fragrant Christmas tree, holiday greenery, wreaths, holiday flowers and cozy decorations.|
Start new family traditions. Read a Christmas story every night. Set up a puzzle table. Play charades. Bake cookies and bring on the hot cocoa. Get toasty around the fire pit. Plan multiple Zoom parties with family members to keep them metaphorically near and dear. Let’s keep our spirits shining bright. We got this!
|FROM WILMA: As children (sometimes along with our dogs) we jumped into piles of leaves, crunched through them, or tossed handfuls in the air. My folks used them as bedding for farm animals. Leaves were composted and used to enrich the garden. Oak leaves were used to mulch trees and shrubs especially azaleas and rhododendron.|
Later leaves were sometimes viewed as trash. They were removed to neaten lawns and often hauled away to the landfill or sometimes burned (ugh!). Thankfully, leaves are “cool” again as we become aware of their benefits. Many pollinators depend on them as places to overwinter eggs, caterpillars, and pupae. Birds scratch through them for food in winter. Gently raking leaves into unmaintained areas and shrub beds adds organic matter, protects pollinators, and keeps them out of the landfill.
As Thanksgiving and the holidays are celebrated in different ways this year may your home and garden provide a place of creativity, refuge, serenity, play (jump into a leaf pile), and spirituality. Thank you, our gardening friends, for your patronage and support these past few months!

|Gardener's Alert - Water Your Plants! It has been dry, windy, and cold. This type of weather dries out plants very quickly. Wind blows moisture out of the leaves and dries the soil. Anything newly planted should be watered regularly the entire first year. Container Gardens dry out more quickly than plants in the ground, so keep your eye on moisture levels around your garden and in pots.|
