It is another crisp and frosty day here in Alberta. I think that we are in for a long winter. As is my usual tradition, I am trying to embrace the beauty of this season. I'm trying to push away my feelings of wanting to hibernate until about April when the weather warms up and the yard begins to slowly bloom. ;)
Today I took my camera out into the front yard to capture some winter "blooms". I will hang onto the idea that there are beautiful blooms to be captured in every season.
The blue sky and frost is giving everything a magical sparkle. Santa would approve. ;)
Rob and I headed over to the greenhouse to pick my mother up a Christmas bloom for her room. This greenhouse is one of my favourite places to go during this time of year. There are beautifully decorated trees, the smell of fresh greens in the air and my favourite thing, the amazing array of poinsettias.
There is even this cute little hut that houses special decorative lights and more Christmas decor. I always think how if I was a kid I would think that this little spot was the perfect place to be.
I'll leave you with a photo that Rob took of our village at nighttime.
