WINTER SOLSTICE

My daughter's backyard.


Today is my most favorite day of the year. It is the longest night and the shortest day. It is also the start of winter. Starting tomorrow daylight will be increasing. The winter weather started in the Northwest this past week and we have had 10" of snow. This much snow is very unusual as there are many winters we only have a few flurries. We have had to fill our bird feeders twice a day to keep up with our hungry feather friends.





The small mounds on the bottom of the picture are miniature box woods . I can't decide if the birdbath looks more like a mushroom or a cake on a pedestal cake plate.

Merry Christmas, Jacq!

It does resemble a cake on a cake. I think it looks like the North Pole. ;-D

Thanks for sharing your photos. Ten inches--whoa! Would have loved some snow around my home for Christmas.

Enjoy your time with your family and friends. I'll be thinking of you, Dear Friend.

You are loved,
~Fannie

I love the snowy pictures, Jacq! They take me back to my childhood in Ohio. Did you have a white Christmas?
