SNOW DESCENDED

sunflower heads, ungainly ornaments

I am green with envy but I do have lots of tomatoes on the vine.

Hey, I thought the news said you guys got almost a foot of snow. I was expecting to see more !
Luna is such a doll. She appears pink next to the snow, did you notice ? I detect a slight quiver in there, too !
The sunflowers look like giant light bulbs and remind me of street lamps. :)

Wow Em!
Now I've seen the potager through nearly every possible season, time of day, atmosphere and its always wonderful!
These images are impressive... Love the one of Luna too!

Your photos are always such a delight to see! Luna is beautiful in the snow, and those sunflower heads...spectacular! You find the best things to photograph!
Love the lines and shapes of the potager under snow. It's especially lovely at night.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas, Em. xoxo

Lights in your potager....how clever! It is looking spectacular, as always.

We had a foot of snow 2 weeks before Christmas, and it all came down in 24 hours! Some melted but we had enough left for a white Christmas.

Best Wishes for the New Year!

miss m, there was quite a bit of snow on long island, not far from here. yes, luna's belly looks pink because she has so little hair there. she's a doll. the sunflowers did look good, but now they're a bit sad... thanks for commenting!
