  1. Lovely photos and words, Tania. I am loving this Winter, it is such a welcome contrast to last Summer, with its scorching heat for days and days on end. Meg:)

  2. Hi Tania, Thanks for sharing these lovely bright photos with us.

  3. LOL - Winter around here is a far different world! I like yours better (but I wouldn't want your summer).

  4. I don't mind winter. I love the warm fires, the comfort food, the snuggles on th couch under a crochet blanket
    And being inside to rest after a hectic summer and autumn crafting and enjoying the fruits of those labours

  5. Great shot of flowers - that grabs my interest every time.....especially today being winter solstice.

  6. Love the photos, Tania. I especially like the one of the bike. I am not looking forward to summer one little bit.

  7. Love Edith Sitwel's quote.
    Thanks for sharing all of your beautiful photos.

  8. I love these quotes Tania. It's so good to hear others enjoy this season as much as I do.

  9. beautiful Tania, winter looks like spring at your place! I have like one flower here! xxx
