Happy Holidays

I posted this photo on Facebook nine years ago (and again yesterday). I photographed this from our backyard deck when we were still living in the Sierra foothills. I thought it captured the essence of the season, that star of sunlight in the fir tree. We wish you all a lovely holiday, how ever you celebrate, may it be with love, peace, and kindness.

    1. Linda-- We did have our own slice of paradise, but that was a while ago. Now we have a slice of suburbia on the beautiful north coast. Happy holiday to you!

  7. O my goodness again! Nine years ago! I remember when you and roger were living in Port Townsend. That doesn't seem that long ago, but many Decembers have come and gone since then.

    Love the sun/star at the top of the tree. You and the natural world are truly compatible (-:

    This winter we've been seeing winter robins -- something new for me, but a friend said that winter robins in Western Washington were her mother's favorite birds. Ever since I've been putting out bread crumbs, there is a Bewick's wren visiting my porch. Today I saw it at the suet feeder. A lovely bird that I've never consciously seen in the 35 years (!) I've had this porch.

    1. am-- Surprisingly, this photo was taken in Grass Valley. We left Port Townsend 11 years ago in 2008. Time really goes by so quickly these days. I'm so glad you like the photo. It was a lovely ephemeral moment. I'm so glad you are seeing robins there. Yay!! And how incredibly cool that you saw a Bewick's Wren. Yes!

  8. I've always loved this photo! Commenting on am's comment, we have lots of winter robins around here in Colorado. They are abundant in my neighborhood.

    1. Tara-- Thank you for your kind words. We've been seeing a few robins lately, but nothing like the trees full of them when we first arrived five years ago.
