Good morning and Happy Sunday, friends! I was up to see the first light of the day this morning. Although with these shorter days one doesn’t need to get up very early to see the first light of the day. I took this a little after 6am. I love being up before it is light, do you?
Yesterday morning, however, I was up a bit later, and instead of the first light I caught the sun welcoming the day. It was a very frosty morning. The landscape looked as though sugar had been sprinkled upon it.
When we start getting snow I start filling the bird feeder. This is the second fill which is almost gone. Hmm, maybe the squirrels could answer that question.
I have finally finished up this blue sweater dress ensemble. I would like Gina to model it, but she is wearing another that needs photographing, so that will have to wait a bit.
Here are my three girls in the other sweater dress ensembles I’ve recently made. Don’t they look festive and warm?
A couple of weeks ago, and while we had snow on the ground, I visited the Chicago Botanic Gardens. They were very busy setting up for Lightscape, so some places were roped off. I walked around the Dwarf Conifer Garden which is the perfect place when there is snow on the ground. It feels so very Christmasy.
I also visited the greenhouses. I wanted to ‘feel summer’ again, and I did. The warmth and humidity in the tropical greenhouse felt so nice.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. readers! Wishing you safe travels if you are traveling.
