Solstice musings


Winter in Upstate NY seems dreary and gray sometimes. So it's good to get outside and walk around the block and look for the beauty in nature.

Sometimes it's a dried seed head.

Sometimes it's a patch of flowers that just kept on blooming until the last minute. Even then, their frozen, dried petals hold a certain beauty.


The GROGgers are going on a holiday break. Some of us will head outdoors with our cameras, some of us will snuggle up with a book, and some of us will be sharpening our pencils and searching for that notebook we left somewhere on/under/behind the couch...

Enjoy the holidays ~

See you in 2022!


  1. Happy Holidays, GROGgers! Thank you for all the wonderful posts throughout the year.

  2. There's something beautiful about crossing from one place (or season) to the next - leaving and moving forward all at once.

  3. Happy Holidays! See you in the New Year! Maybe 2022 be good to you all!

  4. Lovely photos.

    Merry Christmas!

    Blessings for health and happiness in 2022.
