A Winter Tapestry

Hello! The polar vortex has come and gone. Time for a walk on the beach. Come on, the fresh air is so delightful.

The beach and dunes are silent and colorless.

Yet if I look closely, the quiet subtle beauty is revealed. A pale tapestry, with brilliant red-orange accents....

Back at home, Mo seems happy playing indoors more. But we're very grateful that it is now light out for our dinnertime walk at 5 PM.

Yes, the days are getting longer! Did you notice?  I don't mind the cold, but the early dark is not something I enjoy. Hot tea, candles, soup on the stove---what do you do to ward of the winter blues?
How about---January sunflowers! in my friends' garden.



gone to the beach....

PS The other day I forgot to include my tiny flag quilt in my 2015 finishes. I love it!
