Thinking of winter

I got an email today from a friend who lives in the far north -- Yellowknife.
They have snow there -- and true cold, but are pretty artistic with the
holiday lights.  We have lights on our Eiffel tower statue on the front lawn, and
I guess some people might think that's about the holidays.  It is of course,
but it's about taking a holiday in one of our favourite cities, not the festive season.  

So I am working on getting pieces about winter ready for the Winterlude
show that will be at the Heliconian in December. 

Here's a winter scene from a 6 years ago.  Knock on wood, we haven't
had snow yet.  But the garden has gone down except for the planters on
our front and back porch.  

I hope wherever you are you'r enjoying the seasons.

Have a loving your life day.
