    What an outfit! Having just read an essay about “the extraordinary cognitive capacities of plants* , I can imagine what this self-assured one is thinking. Something about how satisfying it is to create fashion attire from setting and circumstance. I’m sure she is pleased that you took notice.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Kathy! The operative word is ‘almost’ lol! See what glistening (and frigid) weather you are missing? Negative digit windchill tonight, too. πŸ˜‰
      Enjoy your relative warmth. πŸ™‚

  16. A wonderful picture for the season. It looks like you have much more snow than us. We have gotten two dustings now, but nothing significant.

  17. Kris P says:

    That’s quite a balancing act!

    Snow improves the looks of just about everything…too bad it’s so COLD.

  23. I love the contrasting colours!

  24. bittster says:

    So pretty, the perfect holiday greeting! -of course I was always a sucker for holly, spines and all πŸ™‚

  25. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature says:

    Perfect! what a happy little holly!

  26. Simply beautiful, Eliza. This brings to mind how I watched last night a gorgeous bunny as big as some of my cats munching on my rose bushes. I sighed. And said, “So be it.” and then I smiled and enjoyed just watching this beautiful animal. ☺️

  27. naturebackin says:

    Amazing how light, fluffy and almost sugary the snow looks! It is beautiful, but do stay warm and cosy.

  28. Best Christmas Card Ever!

  29. NorCal Zen says:

    So crisp, Christmassy and beautiful ❀

  30. BerriU2ful…βœ¨πŸ€—
