HERITAGE

SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN for THURS. DOORS this week!

What a heritage believers have in the cross.

the door or my big art studio when we lived in N. California
One Word Sunday, Weekly Smile

It has been cold, close to zero, but I wished snow would fall.
Often, like in my previous back yard!

And below, since I needed a wordless capture,
a small bridge in the Huntington Garden Library looking
so compelling that I included it in one of my paintings.

Sundays Best, Wordless Wednesday

Peering in one of the windows of a historical building in Old Town Sacramento
made for a very interesting reflection.
Travel Tue, Weekend Reflection

When living in Northern California, I could take sky pics every day.
It was seldom a blue sky without any pattern.

    1. There are many BBQ restaurants here – we still need to find the best one!
      Heard there is a botanical Garden in Dallas, but I am waiting to go there in Spring. Yeah, Balboa Park and the Huntington Library Gardens in Pasadena I both miss very much (the last one is so big, we mostly don’t see everything in one day). Have a great week!

    1. Thank you Deborah – one of these happy accidents! Here it’s cold too, and the humidity makes it feel colder than it really is.I miss my wood stove – so much warmer than central heat.

    1. Yeah, no snow here either, although ti’s cold. These photos were taken when living in Pioneer. Every winter we had snow (no complaint here, snow makes me think of my childhood, and it’s very easy to take beautiful images) , although the real estate agents made it all sound like it was hardly worth it. The last winter we were out of power 4 times because of it!

  1. Janet, it’s still amazing to me how happy I was to see snow back in living conditions after 40 years. Of course it helped to use it as a subject to photograph. Here in Texas i rather do not have snow, for our central heat is not warm at all (am having my heaviest sweaters on while in the 50ties!)

  2. Thank you Lydia. Went to your blog, am glad you are not worried about covid. I read that in the UK they made the decision to treat it the same way as the (winter) cold. I hope they’ll soon be as smart here! /

    1. Reconnecting with living in snow after my growing up years in the Netherlands was a great inspiration! And it helped we had about 60 trees higher than 60 feet on our property.

  3. That photo of the snow-covered tree with green grass under it is magical! It reminded me of Tolkien’s “the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.”

    1. Impressive you quoted Tolkien:} So that means not only do you love to travel, you also love reading!
      I knitted a scarf last year with the quote “not all who wander are lost.”

      1. I love it when people recongize quotes I love (though it doesn’t happen often…), for you to actually knit the very same quote… How marvelous it is to find a kindred soul! You are correct, I do, very much, enjoy both 🙂

    1. So true, I miss the weather and the landscape, but it was just too tough on hubby with keeping up the grounds of our property there. We just looked – it increased a 100K in value in 1 and 1/2 year – that’s how crazy it is with houses in California.

  4. The cross on that door is beautiful, Emille. I’ve been to Balboa Park, but almost twenty years ago. I’m not sure I’ll get back, but the memory will stick with me.

    1. Thank you Dan. Balboa park undoubtedly added some things. The road up to that big fountain is my favorite part, as well as the botanical building and the open air concert space..

    1. I know, that’s why the text underneath is “it’s not a painting.” Guess I was early yesterday, because you had not linked to Sky Watch yet.Now I’m off to your blog!

    1. Sorry, I wish that were the door, but since it is a metal barn, it was a plain white door, so I had hubby make this for me as a background for the cross:)
