Greetings from Seattle

Hello, December-r-r-r!

We had a little snow Saturday morning.  It's still here.

I took these photos Sunday morning, but now, on Monday morning, it still looks the same where direct sunlight has not slightly warmed us during our clear sky days and nights.

 Native Oregon Grape - Mahonia
 Juniper
 Cotoneaster - the robins were waiting for me to leave


 Mugo pine 
 freeze dried hydrangeas 

 Frozen.
 The wreath is up by the front door.  We made it at my sister Laurie's Thanksgiving Day wreath workshop. 
This week we'll finish the decorating indoors, and Tom hopes to brave the cold and finish the out door light display.

  1. Although I don't miss living in snow country, I enjoyed your pictures. Loved the ones with the red berries showing through the snow.

  3. Oh, it looks cccold!! I awoke my first morning in Maine to 12" of the fluffy white stuff......it sure was pretty, but it's not my favorite thing.

  4. No snow in Hillsboro. Love your wreath. Always think I'll do a live wreath but never have. Look forward to keeping up with the Reeder family traditions this month.

  5. The wreath is gorgeous. And I think the snow in the garden shots are as well--much easier to appreciate other people's snow. We had a foot of it for Thanksgiving, but it is all gone now.

  7. We didn't get a drop of snow here in Bellingham but Ferndale, just a few miles to the north, they got three inches! I love your pictures and am a bit envious, since the snow makes such beautiful shots! :-)

  9. Nice snow and very good for photos. However, you'll lose it very quickly.

  12. Looks like you got just a touch more snow there than we did. I am waiting for the deep freeze to end again. I'd much rather have rain than snow.

  14. Pretty pictures, but I don't miss the snow in New York, where I lived 1970-1975.
