First, I'd like to tell you about the Great Reads series hosted by Rambling Renovators.
Jen was kind enough to include me as one of her great reads along with
several other blogs that may be totally new to you.  Two rounds of "great reads"
are already posted and I should be showing up sometime today.

And if you don't know Jen's blog, you'll certainly enjoy seeing her home renovation.
Her project gallery is filled with amazing before and after posts.
Be sure to check out her laundry room renovation.  It's incredible!

We had our first measurable snow Saturday through Sunday.  Since we had almost
no snow or rain all last winter, it's a great thing.  And it makes even the
scrappiest garden look like a winter wonderland.

This is the trouble with boxwoods in our area.  A little snow and they splay right out.

Across the street.

But inside, I'm looking ahead to spring.  I'm planting a new round of "yellow paperwhites" (seems like an oxymoron) which are said to have no scent.  I think they're just daffodils.

A few hyacinths, conifer and hops off the tree are ready for New Year's brunch
and fill the dining room with an aroma of spring.  They promise great things to come.

And may your New Year be filled with great things!

Happy 2013!

You might see an old friend or make a new one.
