We got 5 inches of snow yesterday; in April. We have packed up all the decorations, the wreaths are in the compost bin, and the winter jacket is back in the closet, but it still looks like Christmas around here. Maybe because of the white stuff on the ground, or maybe to spite Mother Nature, I can’t give up on the garland.
Now, I’m not talking about the shiny silvery stuff that starts to look like a mangy cat after a few years. I’m talking about a new, updated version. Made from cool patterned papers and colorful baker’s twine.
I know it’s strange, but why should we put anyway these fun accouterments when we are just getting excited about the proposition of flowers budding and grass greening? Decorate for Spring, I say! Look how pretty it makes the place!
