As a matter of fact, there are some bits of green still persisting in the garden.
For example, this mint.
I've tried to eradicate it, but it returns repeatedly.
I should pick some and dry it.
Drying a bunch of sage may well be a good idea too. It would go so well with chicken or turkey.
If you have any tips on how to ensure a long and happy life for these two plants, please pass them along. I tried to keep one in the house before; it was an abysmal failure. However, as the old saying goes, "Where there's life, there's hope."
The orchid, meanwhile, is a happy houseplant. It just sits there, in its purple clay pot, looking splendid with glowing, white blooms and thick, leathery leaves. I'd love to take some credit, but the thing seems indestructible and the flowers last for months.
There you have it, even with the leaves gone from the trees, there is still a bit green to be found . . .
and, increasingly, some cheery red is creeping in to keep it company.
I'm pleased to be linking to Fiona's "Green Day" over at Raindrops and Daisies.
