Happy Winter Solstice 2009



Today marks the end of fall and the beginning of winter, celebrated the world over as "Winter Solstice".  We leave autumn behind us, remembering the crisp air, clear blue skies, and crunchy leaves.  We slip into the darkness of short winter days, but only for a moment.  As the Winter Solstice passes, the sun starts to slowly warm us again, pulling our hearts and our minds towards spring and the promise of new leaves unfurling, new flower buds opening, and grand gardens awakening.  It is only a matter of time until then, so enjoy the quietness of winter and all of her splendor.
