Some of my home Christmas decor.
Well, there was no white Christmas this year. At least not in my part of Croatia. Where are those winters when we had to dig a tunnel through the snow to get out of the house? It was more like the end of the winter days; sunny, 6°C and the first snowdrops coming out of the ground.
We, who live in the world temperate zone are accustomed to seasonal changes. But, somehow, there is no 'real' winter anymore. I miss snow. Not only because that wonderful winter atmosphere but because it is an important natural protection from frost and cold in the garden. In Spring, melting snow brings moisture to the ground and now we have to pray for some rain.
Kale keeps very well. I really admire the lovely bluish-black colour of kale 'Black Tuscany'. Both, the blue and the curly one are beautiful decoration in the vegetable garden.
I have a new book to read: Permaculture - A beginner's Guide by Graham Burnett. I am really interested in it cause I like working with nature.
