Green In Winter

moreflowers8We often mention the cognitive dissonance of the Northern California seasons. Green in winter, brown in summer. We will focus on the green….and the flowers that hang on through winter. The roses get their petals knocked off by the rain, but they keep coming back. The rosemary is still in bloom and a few of the bees are working the blossoms. The hummingbirds scrap over the remaining flowers (and let us know to back off!). Our kind of winter.moreflowers14moreflowers12moreflowers3moreflowers11moreflowers15moreflowers2moreflowers1moreflowers10moreflowers13moreflowers9moreflowers5

  1. Your winter is wonderful … and your photos of it are absolutely stunning – love the little objects in “more flowers 12 & 14” So delicate. But I will struggle with living somewhere it’s only 1 or 2 seasons. Love the winter. Last night we had -18C. More snow to come on Saturday, so I have to make my way back to Landskrona tomorrow, so I don’t end up snow storm again.

    • We like to visit the snow, but after 20 years in some of the very cold weather, we need another 20 to get away from it! We do miss the beauty of winter, just not the temperatures…

      • Same people would love to be in your shoes … no snow – frost is fine with me too. Love it when it covers everything. Plus the air is so fresh.

  2. I liked the picture of Tina or that is what mom called her. Tina always reminded me of Carolyn.
