A Happy New Month & More Advent Ideas
Morning at the Tree Farm

Poetry Friday ~ In the Dark of December


"I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December."

 ~ Oliver Herford

I was thumbing through old nature posts as I'm writing up a little talk on winter birdfeeding for Nature Study Club next week, when I came across this picture. There's just nothing so cheerful as the noisy little chickadee on a cold winter's day. :)

Well, we're off to the tree farm this morning! It's bright and chilly here, but the clouds are moving in, and there's a promise of snow in the forecast. Hooray

Have a lovely Friday, my friends!
