Happy Holidays

Coming And Going Of Seasons

Another year just about to end, a new one to start and life will go on.  Nothing keeps your perspective on life in check like gardening I believe.  I can see the full cycle life, from beginning to end in one season.  And, nothing keeps your perspective on society in check like beekeeping.  As Marcus Aurelius stated in his Mediations “That which isn’t good for the beehive, can’t be good for the bees.”  I witnessed one of our hives swarming repeatedly, until it was too weak to defend itself from being robbed. By the end of the season it had perished.  Divide and conquer seems to work every time, in any group, any society.  What else did it teach me? – what isn’t good for society as a whole, can’t be good for an individual.

I don’t mean to be pedantic.  I just love to read philosophy and watch nature unfolding for fun…and I learn in the process.

I captured this summer snowflake (Queen Anne’s Lace) below and wanted to share it with you during this holiday season.

Wishing you very happy and healthy holiday season and a productive New Year, 2017.  Hope your new year and new season will be even better than the last.

Thank you very much for reading this blog.  I will try my best to be more consistent.

    1. Thank you. We look forward to an update on the little hedgehogs. Hedgehogs on this side of the Atlantic are not cute and cuddly. Here, they are 8 to 10 pound balls of nastiness with painful quills. Picking one up over here ends in a visit to the clinic with pliers Over there, they’re cute and we’re hooked.
