All THE LEAVES ARE BROWN..and the sky is grey..

The days here continue to be overcast and grey....The air is fresh and filled with the fragrance of the Jasmine vine that grows crazily around my house...My favorite time of the year...WINTER IN CALIFORNIA...this is the time when all is in bloom... when you can breathe clearly... a fire burns in the fireplace.... My favorite clothes come out... sweaters and gloves... thick tights.... boots... wooly scarves... The wool coat I bought in London... .Wrapping myself in swaddling knits.... When you have sunshine for 300 days a year, 10 inches of rain total... Grey becomes soothing ...comforting... It takes the edge off the dust and dirt and smog and leaves covered in the grunge from the cars and planes and trucks and ships coming in and out of this harbour town...

Sounds more like a song from the Mammas and Pappas to me, although that may just be showing my age!!

Hello darling thanks so much for visiting my cottage and for the kind words you left behind, much appreciated. When you speak of your blog experience, it reminds me of mine. You see, I started mine April of 2009. The day I started it I had no idea what a blog was and didn’t know my way around. With the help of my daughter, I started and now like you I love it too. I can’t imagine life without blogging. I look forward to our future visits.

Love & Hugs
Duchess

I can see that. It was grey here today too. Although, it bummed me out a bit since the dude bounces off the walls when he can't play outside. Ah ha ha

Hey Cynthia, would you like to come and join our group. I started a place called the Spiritual Collective. The way in is hitting the button at the top of my side bar.
Think you might like it. It's a wimmin's place for sharing and caring and stuff. Even though we have two men in it!
It's not closed so anyone can join that thinks they might like to be in a social network.
