winter wonderland

beauty in every season

Here are some snapshots of the home and studio at the lake mid-winter. Enjoy.

Snow on the distant horizon (volcano) is visible from the lake on a very clear New Year's Day.

winter blossoms

still blooming indoors in winter

The Christmas Rose (helleborus) blooms outdoors in winter. With no snow, the white helleborus flower is as close to a "White Christmas" as we had here.

tree hunt

It was a beautiful day to select trees with the family.

My twin nephews picked out a beautiful noble fir at the farm.

lake-side studio in winter

Someone attached a small, lighted tree to a half-submerged log. Nice idea, but I think the wind tipped it.

The sunroom off the studio sparkles with art glass, decorations and lights.

A very happy and prosperous New Year to you!
