You can NOT improve upon nature for beautiful winter colors!

We saw lots of color in the woods when we hiked last week.

Hubby took these photos and I love the way they came out!

Even the pinecones I picked up were reddish brown.

Hello, pretty sky captures. The colors are beautiful. I like the pine cones and the berries. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

Sandy said...

One thing I love about blogs and Instagram is being able to see nature from all over the country. Just like the colorful leaves. December is when we get colorful leaves in Florida. There are some really pretty ones across the bayou from me right now.

With stunning blue skies like yours, who could help going outdoors! Our skies are dull and grey with frequent waterings. Still, we like to get out when we can. Have a wonderful week enjoying all the Florida colour and sunshine.

Those pinecones are perfect for Christmas. I love when people sprinkle them with glitter around Christmas, so pretty.

Beautiful Diane. Nature is amazing. We have one of those red berries bushes. It blooms berries every other year.

Nature IS the source of all color ... thanks for sharing yours with us this week. Our prominent tone this week is WHITE. But that's not stopping us from going out!!! It has been a blessing to me to get to know you through your blog - thanks for welcoming me to the blogging family this year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

BeachGypsy said...

I love your collages! You're so right....there's alot of color there--so pretty and so festive this time of year especially. We have been walking and walking and walking....weather up in the 70s and just way too nice to stay inside. Definetly meeting our walking goals for the past two weeks, even tho we did have a cold spell there for a bit. I even got to wear my winter coat, LOL Do you have any family coming for Christmas?
