ALL SEASONS – JANUARY NOSTALIC

 

 

 

Hello All Seasons Bloggers,

The link is open this week from Sunday January 20 through Friday January 25 at noon, Pacific time.

Click  where you see this sign ♠ ♠ ♠.
It opens up a page where you fill in your blog post title etc. and choose an image (at “Web” or “File”).
Voila and you’re done! Be kind and visit some others!

Many thanks for your beautiful captures of your interesting experiences.
They bring much pleasure and joy. You can be proud of yourself, Blog Friends!

For you who have yards or gardens,
isn’t it interesting that a New Year begins
with a bare, or even messy garden?
One advantage is that it gives you time to think
about what you like to plant:)
Even though I’m not a gardener,I can relate to
the “messy” stage, for I deal with that in painting.
Haven’t decided yet if these images
are nostalgic or messy, or both
…what do you think?
Don’t worry about giving the “right” answer,
because there is none for me.
Just like to know how you experience this phase.

 

 

The ugly stage. My comfort is that every yard here looks like this!

 

 

 

 

 

 

With freezing temps the studio is almost abandoned,
because even with the wood stove on, one can only be there
for a short time (for a painting artist, half an hour is “limited”)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since there is also “nice” mess on the road side, I don’t mind:)

In my post “It’s Gonna be Busy” you’ll read inside my house
there is also going to be a mess.This mess I don’t mind
either, because it’s going to be bigger, with features I like.

 

 

 a BERRY RED nice mess:)

I figure, it’s relative  to clean up a mess, or just wait till the weather changes (I do remember laws of having to clean up sidewalk when there’s snow or ice in the city), but no one cares when living off the grid like I do.

    I love snow! So far I haven’t seen much this year this year. We are back from Spain, let’s see what I can put together.

    I posted a photo of our Mango tree in bloom during March. It produces thousands of blossoms, with dozens on each stem, but only one baby mango will survive, usually at the very end of each stem. Of these hundreds of little pea-sized, most will die and drop before growing into edible fruit. Even then, the tree will be burdened with drooping progeny. Then they must be quickly harvested as the birds will feast on them! Mango has a tough life!

    Jesh – anything with snow on it is nostalgic in my book! Love the red berries contrasting with the white snow! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  5. I would absolutely call the situation at your first image a mess, but it’s getting better and better further in this post. The end with the orange ladder and the red berries it beautiful.
    t this moment we are having the first snow of this year. It won’t be a lot, but I hope to make some nice photos this afternoon.
    Wintery greetings from the Netherlands.

    1. Thank you! It’s nice that there’s also some beauty in the mess:) Yay, happy that at least you have a little snow, and who knows you’ll have more – because there’s still time:)

    Thanks for the email. I’ll be back for next week’s All Seasons. I’m lucky we don’t have any snow and the temperatures have been warmer this winter. My garden is still producing broccoli, kale, carrots and beets. I use the dormant season to move and transplant my blueberries, and prune the blueberries and red currant. That’s about all I’ll do until April. – Margy

    I was raised with snow and truly walked to school in knee-deep snow many times. I love the quiet of it when it falls at night. It looks so pretty in photos–until it gets all brown and icky! I only see it in New Zealand every 5 or 6 years, so the pictures are special to me.

    Jealous that you have snow…but after freezing my fingers, nose & toes last night while shooting the spectacular moon…I do believe I will survive without the snow. But seriously, if it’s gonna be this darn cold…it needs to at least come with some white magic! Your images are lovely as always…stay warm!

    Renovating is fun, but yes, it is messy, Jesh. No pain, no gain!

    Ha! Funny you should talk “messy” this week, Jesh, I am cleaning out my study which had accumulated all sorts of “mess” over the past few years. It’s wonderful because it’s like I am at an archaeological dig and I am constantly discovering all sorts fo treasures as I remove layers of detritus… I like messy!

  11. The snow on the berries looks lovely, but then I don’t live where it snows, so I don’t understand the mess that snow makes. I hope you can stay warm and find a warm place to work.

    At last I think I am learning how to leave comment on your post. I was not finding how to comment. I thought you live in CA. So, I am guessing you live in Northern CA and that’s why there is snow. What a lovely post, and I echo your feelings.

    I have a post but I am not sure if it is appropriate for the seasonal post or not. I entered last week’s seasonal post.

    The red ladder and the red berries set off the winter white in those two photos beautifully! I didn’t realize you got that much snow where you are!

    The berry red looks so good against the ice and snow. Sorry it gets snowy and cold by you and you can’t stand the studio temp. I keep forgetting you’re near the mountains. Doesn’t seem right for California.

  15. Mess? What mess? Perhaps beautiful, lovely, wonderful chaos before order. I’m waiting for that to happen inside the house. This morning Molly the Cat and I cleared a patch of ground and transplanted a few cuttings that actually rooted. Whooo-hooo. Cheers to a wonderful week, Jesh.

    Here in south Florida it has cooled down enough to plant vegetables. Our mango trees will soon be flowering!
