Natural Ornaments

A walk in the winter sun shows efforts of nature to sparkle and decorate the cold landscape. The dew drops shining on the cedar hedge...
Over-loaded pinecones all at the top as if decorated by a tall child...

Topping the tree with two song birds...


Berries that withstand frost and snow and rain...


And my own holly berries that stand guard at the entrance of our driveway.
It has been very warm here. We complain about the rain, but we're the warmest in Canada these days. Consider visiting to escape the treacherous weather of southwest Ontario, or the nagging cold of the east coast. Our hearts are warm, too, even if the hearth has no fire.

Holly is so pretty. Our former neighbors had a really really tall holly tree,near the alley, and I would steal sprigs of it when I'd walk past.
