|Always Like to Take a Look Around After It Has Been Cold and Snowy!|

pretty soggy, but warm instead of cold and snowy. As you can see in the photos above, our snow is gone. The stuff covering the fig on the hillside behind the herb garden is shredded paper! Now that it's wet, it hopefully won't get around the neighborhood if the wind picks up! I always try to get outside and check on the herbs and other plants when it gets warm and make sure the plants haven't heaved up.
As you can see by the banner photo, I got some decorating done! I think it looks cute. Hopefully you have had time to decorate and get ready for the big day. We took a Christmas tour of Hartwood Acres mansion near us yesterday with our friend, Shelley. It is a beautiful house and decorated for the holidays. If you are in the Pittsburgh area, you have to get out to see it.
