    Seeing snow on the coast oddly makes me feel better about our current weather and calms the “grass is always greener” thoughts I have.

    I like how the picture of the heather and the snow is similar in tone to your beautiful blanket.

      Deb – in Victoria the snow only lasted 1 day and Vancouver didn’t get any BUT it is breaking temp.records. Vic. 2 nights ago was -20 with the wind chill factored in – go figure!!

        Wow I didn’t realize it got that cold out there recently. I tend to mostly watch the Gulf Islands weather. Hopefully it will warm up soon.

        Deb – this is an anomaly . I brought 1 hummingbird feeder in last night, set the alarm and put it out at first light – it was already starting to freeze by the time I made breakfast!! yuck

        That’s cold. I only put out black oil seed in our feeders. Right now filling them in thigh high snow is an unpleasant experience.

    All your pictures have the same teal/lavender palette (except for the fireplace). Now that can’t be an accident, can it? Lovely.

      Alice – it is interesting how we unconsciously gavitate to the same colours and combinations. sometimes I get thoroughly bored with myself!

    in spite of the cold, it all looks very cozy and pleasant–your blanket is gorgeous. The hummingbirds must love you!

      Kerry – these are Rufus humming birds, they make a high click, click sound – I take for scolding – this one natters at me all the time but I can walk within a few inches of him and he doesn’t fly away.

    So amazingly lucky to have heather growing near you. One of my favorites. This was like a photo verse of the “My Favorite Things” song.
