Scenes of the Season: pt 2

The season of Christmas continues...

Thanks to a sweet visitor, I will finally get to eat roasted chestnuts--

although they will be roasted in our oven and not over an open fire.

DDD (darling daughter dog) has done her best to keep Farmer Boy warm this week;

she was very excited that her 'Papa' got almost 2 weeks off:)

Outside the cold weather has taken its effect on the gunnera;

come spring it should be fine and able to resume its 'job' as petal and leaf catcher again.

Lots of seasonal colors outside here--

red leaves on our nandina,

rose pink on our camellia sasanqua (not shown)


all of our pieris are adorned in their winter finery too.


Outside our garden, winter is evident

as we journey on the many rural, suburban and urban roads

we find, not snow, but beautiful fog on the mountainsides

(of course, the higher mountains are clothed in glistening white snow).

All of the cold, darkness, fog and rain seem to invite extra naps--

or maybe it is all the leftover Christmas candy?

Speaking of sleep...

I think it is time for me to get some.

Night, night.

HI Aimee,

Oh, roasted chestnuts are a nice treat :) :)

I love the fog on the mountains, too...and believe it or not, here on the coast of California, we have fog...from the ocean...but it rises up from the mountains, too, and it's gorgeous :)

Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather ;)

Hi, Heather!
I am really looking forward to roasting them--I was quite excited when they arrived! I remember the fog hanging off the mountains in your area---it was SO beautiful! Carmel reminds me of Cannon Beach:)
Blessings in the New Year,

Hi, Britt-Arnhild!
So nice to hear from you--thank you very much for the compliment! I have told my daughter-in-law that if she moves to Europe, she must visit your homeland and take many, many photos there for me:) I never get enough of your beautiful photos:)
Wishing you many blessings in 2012!
