One Last Frosty Morn'...

20F / -7C this morning! This will be the last frosty morning for a while since the rain will be returning again tomorrow. I ventured outside in my slippers and robe again to catch some beauties...

In the mean time, Thanksgiving came and went. It was wonderful to have all four of us back together again. Miss M. will be back in less than two weeks and Master C. will return a week later, so we will not have to wait so long this time...

Our tree to be!

  4. Huge tree! Our ceilings are very low, what with having a dinky little cottage. We had to get a diminutive tree (but it's still beautiful)...
    I'm envious of your frosty mornings. We've had about 6 weeks of driving rain and howling gales. I suppose we're lucky not to have been flooded, but still - I long for ice and snow.

  5. Your beautiful photos are inspiring me to get out into my yard again!


How wonderful to hear from you!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
