We always do a walk-about
the church property.  Our 
son-in-law pastors a small
Baptist Church in Cooperstown.
The parsonage is next door
to the church and the grounds are
covered in lovely green grass
year round. 
We saw the remains of the 
vegetable garden that had produced
at high capacity all summer long. 
One single night of below freezing temps had
 left skeletons of tomatoes and brown
leather like stems draped on trellises.  The
kale was the only living thing 
left in the garden,
thriving and promising good
healthy greens to accompany 
the black eyed peas and cornbread
winter meals. Our daughter 
mentioned "kale chips" as an
interesting healthy snack idea.

Bordering a section of the 
property was an old wooden 
fence somewhat  hidden by vines
 covered with bright orange
and yellow berries.  We
reached up high to gather
some of the nicest stems of
the "Bittersweet."

Have a blessed
 Lord's day, everyone.  Dee Dee
