New Bethel News
The New Bethel Church family observed "The Hanging of the Greens" program on the first day of the Advent Season Sunday. Pastor Connie and husband, Mitchell, had prepared the altar area with royal purple velvet trimmings and the large pre-lit Christmas tree was set and ready for the children's ornaments. The white poinsettias were presented by Susan Davis and Emma Redicker. Wreathes for the wall beside the altar were hung by Kylee Walters and Hannah Webster. Hannah Webster read appropriate scripture while her sister, Sarah, lit the first candle of the season. The ivory ceramic Holy family sat on a large table in front of the altar. All the children hung handmade ornaments on the tree and we were told each family would find an ornament representing their family members. Special music was shared by Susan Davis on the violin.

Whitetail crossing - Originally called Virginia deer, they are numerous again
I was driving on highway through a woodland one cloudy, cold winter day recently. Trees and brush lined the road. It was a quiet road, no critters, not even a single bird.

Forcing bulbs for the holidays
The easiest and most common of the "forced" bulbs are the amaryllis and the paperwhite narcissus. Most bulbs require a chilling period in order to successfully force into bloom but the amaryllis and the paperwhite can be potted up straight from the store. This dramatically reduces the time it takes from planting to bloom by eight to 10 weeks. This is a bonus if you are a last-minute type.

Get your garden ready for winter
There are many gardening tasks that must be done or are better done in the fall of the year - tasks like cleaning up old plant material; fertilizing trees, shrubs and lawns; and protecting tender plants like hybrid tea roses and French hydrangeas.

November surprise
As I sat down to breakfast one morning recently and looked out the window at the bird feeder there was a little brown bird on the feeder, a wren.
