Getting Into the Christmas Spirits 2

What have we here?

 

Getting into the Christmas Spirits

Oh, dear! Someone has gotten into the holiday spirit(s), pirating the rum meant for the glaze!

Hedydd’s not the only one with a glazed look…gingerbread cake for a special day.

The first frost has come and gone. It’s appearance was welcome and brief, the garden left undamaged. The pace of growth slows and mornings are chilly. Hitty Anne Sabine recorded one of the last blossoms on the Purple Sweet Potatoes. They had bloomed beautifully, albeit elusively, throughout the season, with dark violet throats fading to palest lavender.

The sweet potatoes were an experiment, grown in bags, raised from slips, inspired by the North Country Hittys; encouraged by Miss Belvia at Aunt Katie’s Community Garden and the good folks at the Living Tree.

It is a minimal harvest, but a successful experiment – enough for a jolly supper for the Gardeners, Guests and very small dolls. The potatoes must cure unwashed for a time, but even with the dirt, aren’t they are a lovely color?

I Enjoy Being A Ghoul

…with apologies to Nancy Kwan

Yorick, between engagements, is always eager to be of assistance, even in the Costume Shop…er, sewing room. Helping hands he cannot provide, but today his discerning eye and impeccable good taste compelled him to give a nod of approval to Agapanthus’s selection of silk flowers for seasonal floral crowns intended for two Little Girls.

Behind the mountains and through the trees, the late afternoon sun illuminated a work-in-progress:  a watercolor of the chalet Agapanthus and LL Mustache called home for a brief few days.

The chalet on the bluffs

Agapanthus had perched at the artist’s elbow, quietly confident in his ability to capture a perfect afternoon. Little Lord Mustache thought the depiction of the festive fire hydrant should have received a bit more attention, given its importance in the composition, its importance in general.  It is, of course, a matter of perspective.
