Today is the winter solstice. Goodbye Fall, hello Winter.
Also, apparently it's the end of the world.
So why not show you some beautiful pictures? A couple of weeks back when we were Birmingham for my cousin's wedding, we stayed with a friend who has a gorgeous home. Because I'm in love with landscapes, gardens, trees and the like, I naturally took a trillion pictures.
|I love this gate, I love this rust.|
|Beautiful home..you should see the inside.|
|A nice little sitting area to enjoy the end of fall.|
|Mossy stone steps and statues.|
|Little fish pond area.|
|Damn this tree is lit up.|
|Saint Francis bird bath|
|I had to go stand under that tree.|
|Then we took a little trail up the hill...|
|Petals all over the ground...|
|I liked this oddly shaped tree.|
|So long Fall, see you next year! (if it's not the end of the world)|
|So then we decided to get a tree on the way back to Mississippi in Alabama.|
|Which beautifully shaped Christmas tree will be ours?|
|Here comes the Christmas tree farmer!|
|Shot by shot of the action so you know exactly what happened when we bought our tree.|
|I just really like taking pictures of this Christmas tree family. Might get you in the spirit.|
|And that's the one we want!|
And so we found this guy, went to his tree farm, picked the one above, cut it down, strapped it to my 4-runner, and brought it back to live with us or die with us. It is decorated and lit up right now. It happily gives us oxygen and makes us merry.
I think this might be the birthday of my blog. SO thanks for reading! Hope it just gets better and better!
