Happy Winter Solstice.

Saturday marks the Winter Solstice, the official beginning of winter in America. It’s also the last weekend prior to Christmas. So with apologies to those who were spinning the dredel around Thanksgiving, and others who don’t celebrate the upcoming holiday, here are a few photos from our December in Baltimore.

Every year our neighborhood lights a giant tree, and Santa pulls the switch.  Then the fire dept. rides him around on a truck.

These next two are along my walk to work in the morning.

Finally, some photos from the Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore.  Every time I'm bummed out in the winter, I go here.

      Thanks! Same to you:)

      I always forget that my living room is yellow until I see a photo from there. In this case, I forgot to fix the photo, so my apologies if we all look a little jaundiced.

        No problem! Thanks for writing this… You reminded me that it’s going to be winter solstice, which gave me an idea for a blog post of my own. Thank you fly for the unintended inspiration

      Thanks Katie! I love going to the conservatory during those gray winter months. Fifteen minutes there and my whole outlook changes.
