December Bloom

Here in SoCal, its been getting milder and it has rained a few times this winter so far (Yay!). Almost feeling like Christmas here, now!

Sunday afternoon, after my barre class, I noticed the backyard's ground was covered in pretty clovers, no doubt, fed by last week's "torrent" of rain.  I wanted to go out to investigate and get some inspiration so I donned my light jacket and flip-flops to brave the cold weather.


Was SO green and pretty.  We hardly get any awesome green things for very long here.  Whenever I go to the East Coast (which is ALL the time, wink wink), I'm always in awe of the colors and size of all the plants and trees.  We get succulents and desert-y plants over in Zone 9, here.  I will say we don't have to deal with deers, however.  I'm sure those are pesky.

Lemons in backyard

In winter, we also get a chance to see the neighbor's apples and lemons ripen.  The lemons are our favorite free addition to our place.  Haven't bought one from the store in a long time.  We always get to add some fun zest to our dishes!

Just some bright and juicy things to check out if you're having a white winter!
