Natural Christmas Decorations! (Monochrome Monday)

Maybe the end of the school year is getting to me but when I looked at the new growth on the tree outside my kitchen window there appeared to be Christmas decorations growing on the tree!

It was all I could do to stop myself from grabbing a paint-can to spray a little silver here and there over the tree, adding a ribbon or two then sprinkling a little glitter. Oh Christmas Tree!

 

 

 

 

 

Glistening Raindrops (Monochrome Monday)

Each time I take more photos of the raindrops hanging off the pine tree outside my kitchen window I promise myself it will be the last time.

Then on this occasion I saw these little “doobies” forming on the tips of the branches and well, one or two more photos wouldn’t hurt… would it?

 

 

 

 

Before the snow fell!

Yesterday before the much-anticipated tiny snow-flakes began falling from the sky, the sky filled with the clouds that have been absent for the last week.

As the sun attempted to make its presence still felt, the light that filtered through those clouds and through the needles on the pines was simply incandescent.

Filtered Light

The light filtering through from behind this tree gave me a lift that I didn’t even know I needed. It was just so beautiful and peaceful!

Filtering the Light

Now with a spring in my step and snowflakes on the deck, no longer am I wondering… “mum, how much longer?”
