First of all, thank you so very much to all of you for your kind words of praise for the last post pairing featuring Ruth Bavetta’s poem, “Autumn Harvest.” It was a pleasure to be able to break open my very first pomegranate and I can’t wait for next year’s harvest. Stayed tuned for more of Ruth’s talent featured here in the months to come.
Also, for those of you who requested seeds from my ‘Black Hollyhock’ plant, I will be picking up the padded envelopes today, packing and mailing tomorrow. There are still some seeds available, so don’t hesitate to speak up if you’d like some. And now, I’m off to get busy on the remainder of the year. There are three papers to write, the final to prepare for, lots of year-end business to attend to at work and the big bad holidays are coming. It’s a busy time for everyone so, however you choose to celebrate, avoid, or survive the holiday season, I wish you all the very best of winter cheer…until we meet again.
