Boy tells me that I am wasting too much time and too many images by posting on my Facebook page instead of here at Reggie. He thinks I've been neglecting you, Dear Reader.
So I'm going to do something about that. I plan on adding more short-and-sweet mini posts here to augment the longer, wordier, image-filled posts I've been doing for most of this past year. The migration of my shorter posts to FB is one of the reasons I've been posting less frequently here at Reggie.
Today's post follows through on my resolution. It features a photograph of our sweet little Basil sitting on the floor of one of our barns at Darlington, with our newly cut Christmas tree—an Abies concolor, commonly known as a Concolor Fir—waiting in the background. Boy cut the tree down this morning at a nearby Christmas tree farm with the assistance of our wonderful handyman/groundsman/all-around-helper/godsend Rich (just as he did last year, too).
We plan on putting the tree up in our drawing room next weekend, with the assistance of darling Basil, of course. Given what Boy has told me about his plans to decorate this year's tree, I am sure it will be one of the most beautiful we've ever had.
Needless to say, Basil is beside himself with excitement!
