We awoke to a light dusting of snow this morning. Just enough to coat the grass and cling to branches. It was quite lovely.
The window boxes also got a coating of snow…very festive.
We need a bit of festive at this time of year. It has been very grey and cloudy this December. I have been doing my usual decorating…bringing in greens to remind us that life will return.
…as is the kitchen counter.
Everywhere really. I think of greens as the flowers of this season..so why not fill the house?
And the window boxes…
Cluckingham Palace, of course, also got stockings.
And today I finished my holiday baking. Cookies mostly.
Tomorrow I will start packing them up and delivering them to friends…
At this dark time of year, treats are always welcome!
But today is the Solstice…Midwinter..the shortest day. Tomorrow the light will begin to return as the days grown longer. There is a LOT of winter ahead of us, but we have turned the corner…and are on our way to Spring!!!
Happy Solstice everyone!!
