Winter Solstice

The winter solstice was here this weekend with perfect weather - the moon and Venus were very bright, heralding longer days for us in the Southern Hemisphere. Saturday I was out planting the garlic in a special garden and to keep the chooks from scratching the bulbs everywhere, I laid down newspaper under some grass clippings. Boy, am I glad I did that! We have had so much rain today the bulbs would be rotting away before long. This week is supposed to be very cold too - so I think lots of sewing will be done!
