"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

A return to the winter palace.
A week or so ago I placed my topiary outside due to our early spring. This weekend it's just too cold for them to be outdoors, and tonight we are expecting snow, so I brought the girls indoors. They are back in their winter garden - grow lights and Mylar surround them, as shown here - in the winter, Mylar and tin foil cover the base, along with the pots for optimum light reflection. I got the idea from pot growers. No - I neither grow pot or use it.
But since you brought it up: Would it still be a sin to smoke it if it was legal? I can never get a straight answer from anyone. Drinking is legal and it is not a sin to drink. Pain killers are legal and it is not a sin to use those as prescribed. I'm not sure I'd use it even if it was legal however - I'm just asking.
Anyway - now that the trees are indoors, I see I need to prune a bit more to get the shape just right. They have 3 siblings remaining outdoors - they happen to be more cold hardy - they being boxwood topiary.
