Seeing Stars

Beautiful and glimmering, holiday twinkle is everywhere. This approaching winter season truly is a time of light. Whether you choose to decorate your home and outside landscape with white, multi-colored or large lit ornaments, extra sparkle can be seen on every street corner.

Of course this is the perfect time to use this season of light to embrace the silhouette of your landscape. Think design and structure even as we approach winter in our gardens. And don’t get so busy looking forward that you lose sight of the natural light; the crystal clear stars and moon above us. With cooler evening temperatures, the sky can be absolutely stunning. Thanks, Liz for pointing out how beautiful the stars can be at this time of year, even on a busy highway.

So I’ll wrap it up with a Mother Teresa quote that captures the essence of this holiday season. “We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.”
