As we approach the winter solstice the days are getting ever shorter here in the North. The sun now sets at 4.18 pm already .. so it was completely dark when I went for a walk.
My neighborhood of Capitol Hill does not go overboard with Christmas decorations, but I would say one in three or one in four houses has some lights up on the house, or on the fence, or in the garden. Does my porch light count? (No, I would say not!). That’s all I have. I put ‘icicles’ on my front gutter one year, but that was several years ago.
