Now comes the long Winter




The last of the fruit has been harvested.





Only a little color left.





Still growing along a protected wall.





A few Anemones and a few frozen Interlaken grapes.





There will be cozy evenings by the warm fire.





Soon our Pond will be frozen over.





Our Fields will be covered with a thick blanket of snow.

And yes, there will be Picnics at the end of our cross-country ski trail.

Happy Snow Days.

Gina

  3. You really make me want for some snow and cozy fires and marshmallows roasting on a stick collected in the woods!

    Your pictures are outstanding, una fantasia autunnale che bacia l'inverno!

  6. Gina, I am also a fan of wintertime, but right now am amazed that our afternoons in New York are having temperatures over 60 degrees F. So it's very strange to already see Christmas trees for sale at stands all along various avenues. Just seems a bit too soon.

  10. Gina, your photographs are always so beautiful! I know I've said it before, but so many of them remind me of the richest Flemmish paintings. I almost expect you and Gene to be wearing ruffs!

  13. Hi Merisis, Would love to follow you around to some of your favorite (and mine) coffee houses of Vienna. A slice of Sachertorte and a fine cup of coffee sounds wonderful right now.

  15. Liebe Karin, Das ist ja richtig. Gestern war der erste Advent. I have fond memories of "waking up ein Raucher Maenchen" for the first advent and the smell of the incense is still very vivid in my memory.

  21. Dear Mark, You did it again! English not being my native tongue, many unfamiliar words come across my cyberspace. Wearing ruffs? Now that I looked up the meaning, your description is hillarious. Have no ruffs but a few lacy tablecloths might do.

  25. Yes, Gina...it is coming...it is almost here. Our weather here in the VA mountains is rainy and so cold tonight. Some snow is actually forecasted. Hope we do not get it just yet because I do not want to lose a day from school so soon in the year. Your selection of photos and your accompanying words are wonderful this week. So meaningful and nice. A special way to get the holiday season off to a good start. genie
