Yesterday started with some rather dreary rain.....
...which then turned into snow. I thought it looked rather pretty on this horehound - it's kind of hard to see though, because horehound itself is sort of an icy-grey-green.
Today the world is covered in white!!
In other news. THE CANDY arrived. Those of you who know what I am talking about already have your coat and shoes on and are out the door, driving to the shop, to get in line for this fantastic candy.
For those of you who don't know about THE CANDY - it is a Prairieland Herbs tradition. Years ago, we discovered this wonderful woman, and Amish lady from southernmost Iowa, who makes the most. divine. candies. EVER. Every year we send her a little card and a handwritten note with our order. A few weeks later, our favorite postal carrier brings in boxes and boxes of this divine handmade candy. We have: Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars, Cashew Crunch, and English Toffee. They are all divine. My favorite is whichever one I ate last. That is how good they are.
So, we have some 70+ 8 oz. containers of these amazing candies, and when they're gone, we won't have them until next year. Local folks, stop in and stock up now! These make great gifts for older folks, hard-to-buy-for dads, teachers, Secret Santa recipients, and, oh yeah - anyone with taste buds.
