snowflake blue

A Solar powered outdoor snowflake turns various colors as it goes thru it's cycles.
It was challenging trying to time the picture to when the color changed because the light fades in and out.

This is a wafer thin Italian Christmas cookie, which is round in itself, but of course I have to make it round in a different way. They are a wonderful anise cookie with neat patterns and I make them each year on a pizzelle iron I got from my mother-in-law. Enjoy the patterns and I will enjoy the cookies!

Pansy in the snow

We have had some very cold days and snow but it is warming up this weekend. A pansy was blooming in the snow and dead leaves. Finding it was a nice surprise.
