Merry Christmas! It has been a week of delights eating wonderful food and visiting with great friends and going out to parties. I have been wondering which of us would explode first from all the food and drink but we have all managed to survive and will hopefully continue a while longer. The dogs have been having lots of fun especially Limo who can't get enough play time running around the meadows and the wooded trails.
For a Christmas gift I was given a kit with greenhouse and all that is supposed to produce Sequoia trees. These are the famous California trees that live thousands of years and are four hundred feet tall. You are supposed to start the seeds in a refrigerator where they spend a month or so followed by similarly detailed instructions. Somehow, I don't think that they will thrive in the Florida sun and heat, so I guess I will try and propagate these and bring them back to North Carolina to see if we can get a grove started on the east coast. A bit of pie in the sky but it is a time for wishes and dreams. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Gardening.
