Countdown to 2021-21

Today: Sunrise at 9:26- Sunset 15:16- Length of day 5:50 hours – time of dusk 0:58 minutes .Two minute less of daylight than yesterday. Today is winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. It is nothing to celebrate, but it marks the end this years voyage to darkness.

Now towards the next goal counting days until Christmas eve. Today I am meeting one of my friends for lunch. She kindly invited me to meet at out local restaurant for lunch and I was not going to say no, we both have been basically staying home all the time and neither on is having any symptoms. It is so sad where we are with this pandemic. I am in a nice situation regarding this illness, that no one I know has had it, sadly this is not the case with many people, but I am lucky that way. This bubble I am in is small, I have not met many people since March when this really hit us.

Today is also the day we are going to decorate the tree. I will have to take a snap of it, even though it will look the same as it has so many years previously as I have not brought any new decorations for years. Traditionally safe look. There is something to say about traditions, this one is OK 🙂

I am really trying to come up with something to photograph, I had no inspiration. Here is slightly frost covered plants from 2013.

Lights of the festive season.

I will be posting new and old photos somehow related to winter, Christmas and eventually anticipation of new year. My aim is to take one new photo a day, but not going to stress over it, if I don’t come up with anything.

After rain

I am trying very hard to find something positive about our summer weather this year. Honestly, It is  so, so hard, it has been cold (+12C )and it has been raining most of the time. BUT on the positive side you might get few good drop pics. I am rather happy with these…

Green with a touch of sunlight

I have been following the growth of my ferns this spring rather closely, yesterday they were in different stages,  depending on their location on my backyard. This is whats been happening…past few days.

all photos can be enlarged by a click.

A Word A Week Photograph Challenge – Yellow

Yellow color is hard to photograph – and I think,  that only photos I have of yellow are flowers.  .Hopefully you found these pleasing to the eye. They are at least a blast of sunlight here in the constant grayness we are having here in the northern  hemisphere. Flower…to brighten your day. I did find something  else too, a beautiful jacket…in golden yellow.
