December



















I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.



- Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing

Love those poignant words, Heather. Maybe even though I love winter; that is why I incorporate special little birds into my holiday decor.

That puts a positive spin on Winter, doesn't it? And with a near 60 degree day today...I could almost smell Spring. Lovely.

Happy December to you too! It may be dark and dreary but the Holidays light everything all up. Have a great day!
