As you can see the sun is barely over the treetops in the middle of the day. I took these photos on friday when I took a day off. I was tired and stressed so I needed it. When I looked out of the window, this was the lovely view that met my eyes.
Its was amazing how the view could comfort me and give me energy for the rest o fthe day.
The garden is asleep under a cover of 50 cm of snow.
This is our christmas tree for the year. It turned bronze, silver and red and the theme is owls and sculls.
The owl below is a new one, it so darn cute and reminds me of the Owls of Gahoole.
I counted to seven owls in my tree.
I have also bought some scull ornaments. They look very evil so the friendly owls balance it off a bit.
Unfortunately I have become allergic to christmas...or the scents of if. It started with the alcohol free glögg (glüwein). That gives me migraine for three days. Quite a hangover, huh? Later I bought two hyacinth bulbs in white for my zinc cones. When they started to bloom I got really bad headache and nausea. Luckily I could have these bulbs left as they doesn't smell as much as the white ones.
I wish you all a lovely holiday and time to relax and spend some time with your family and friends.
