Dear Almanac readers,
Determined to brighten the darkest month of the year, we make the season bright with evergreens, the Yule log, and colorful plants.
In this issue, we focus on those Christmas plants—whether you need plant care tips or a gift idea for a neighbor. (Give a living gift!)
Also, Robin Sweetser—our garden writer—shares great tips on bringing color and texture to the outdoor winter landscape!
With all good wishes,
Your Almanac Editors
The holly's up, the house is all bright.
The tree is ready, the candles alight.
–Carl August Peter Cornelius (1824–74)
