Although I am planning several posts involving the holidays I thought I needed a breather post, not unlike a sorbet course in an elegant dinner. So this is my version of a 'blog palate' cleanser between the glittery, glitzy, over-rich, lavish courses of Christmas decorating and entertaining. I took this picture a couple of weeks ago in the mid-back garden looking up, past the dry stream, paths and rondelle, toward the house. As you can see the trees still have their leaves and the foliage has yet to turn...this has changed radically in the last few days as the weather has cooled down and we are finally beginning to see what passes for winter in sunny Southern California. Although there isn't much color in the garden for some reason this picture really appealed to me. I hope you like it too. On Friday, back to the fun of holiday decorations...now what should it be...the mantle, the frontroom tree, the confectionery vignette in the kitchen...or maybe Santa's bakery.
