'Tis time for a new look in Gran's bowl. Poinsettias have been on display since Hallowe'en; they are wilting. There is something seriously wrong with this mercenary rush to each holiday. I PROTEST and will not purchase plants to include with this year's decorations. Instead, I called upon the baby Norfolk Island Pine that summered on my front porch. The simple arrangement is enhanced by the beautiful shade, gifted to me by Joe's Grandpop over forty years ago (before our home was even built!). We are privileged and pleased to cherish and harbor the memories of our loved ones.
