Colors of Winter

My  Southern California Garden  in Winter is aglow with color this year. We haven't had a frost yet...a few rain storms have gone through...enough to soak the ground and feed the plants. Being a native CA gal I can only imagine what it would be like to live in a colder climate. 
I had a little taste of it in Kansas in November. Burr....
I am so grateful that I can play in the dirt, weed and plant my plants all year long. 

I hope the winter holidays bring you 
joy, warmth, laughter, and bubblies....Cheers!

Kansas Patterns

On my walks in Kansas I found patterns everywhere. Patina and aged things standing through time, regardless of the weather. I...on the other hand...froze my aged Southern CA fingers and legs on my treks....but it was so worth it......
