What a fitting theme for this week's drawing challenge from Tiny Woolf Nadine! Garlands are everywhere this time of year.
These shortest days in the Northern Hemisphere we have lots of lights festooning our house against the darkness.
My kitchen is decked with garlands of twinkle lights.
Outside, too, many garlands of lights illumine the path to our doors. (If you look closely to the right of Flossy, coming down the walk to greet her is William Wallace).
The big old trees around here are garlanded with moss year round.
When I was visiting Lopez Island in Washington State back in September for India's workshop, we gathered bunches of this stuff from the trees there and tried it as a dye plant but the results were unspectacular.
We took these photos on the afternoon ramble along the beach north of our house.
Trees and houses are not the only things getting gussied up however.
Flossy received a garland of lights from her beloved Dad, the Sailor!
Wishing you all the best of the Advent/Solstice season.
Love and light, dear Readers!
(Have a gander at all the other garlands over at Woolfie N's beguiling blog).
