This is 1 of 3 posts of pictures I took in Southford Falls State Park in Southbury, CT on December 30, 2012. It had snowed the day before and was very cold this day, due to the wind chill. These are of the waterfalls at the entrance of the park.

I took these pictures of  the full moon on December 28, 2012. When the moon rose over the horizon it looked huge and was a light amber color. It was stunning! Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me at the time. I took these shots later, through the trees.

Narcissus Paper Whites - Pictures

I took these pictures of  some Narcissus Paper Whites flower bulbs I grew indoors. I was originally going to plant them outside for the Spring, but when I opened the box, they were already growing, so the cold would've killed them. They bloomed just in time for Christmas, and have a heavenly scent.

The first picture is also my entry for Weekly Top Shot #63.

"Old Fashioned Christmas" - Postcard


© All Rights Reserved
I made another Christmas postcard. It snowed overnight so I thought it would be a white Christmas for a change, but it turned to rain prior to dawn, so most of the snow was gone by the time the sun came out. I should've taken some pre-dawn photographs.

All of the images are from the Old Design Shop. (See the side of my blog for links.)

The fonts are Pericles and LaurenScript Thin.

Blooming Yellow Forsythia - Picture


© All Rights Reserved
I took this picture of blooming yellow Forsythia flowers in my yard today. What makes this picture unusual is that it is almost Winter here, so these plants should be dormant. For the past few years, I've had a few blooms on these bushes at this time of year. These appeared despite the fact that we've had a hard frost and some nights in the upper 20s already.

This is my entry for this week's Weekly Top Shot #59.
