My #2017bestnine ๐Ÿ’— I love this grid of my nine most liked photos of 2017! I think it represents me quite well. Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy New Year and I hope to be present here on Instagram more in 2018 than I was in 2017. Cheers! ๐Ÿฅ‚

Merry Christmas! Thanks for following along with my #botanicaladvent this year! Almost every one was posted within an hour before or after midnight of that day, but I did it! ๐Ÿ˜…

Trees have been bare here for several weeks now but yesterday I found these beautiful fallen yellow ginkgo leaves in my neighborhood. Theyโ€™re very dry but their color is still vivid and pretty! ๐Ÿฆ‹ #botanicaladvent

#fromwhereistand with my #rainbowumbrellaโ€”holiday style. Wishing all that rain today was snow instead. ๐ŸŒˆโ„๏ธ

Perpetually playing catch up with this project, but Iโ€™m almost there! ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ„ #botanicaladvent

This one is from a week ago when there was still snow on the ground and the lake was frosted over. Not the most impressive view, especially on a dull gray day, but itโ€™s a familiar spot to me, so it makes me happy. When I stopped to snap this pic I noticed a new sign that designates this spot as a boat launch! I think I need a canoe! ๐Ÿ›ถ

I decided to arrange a vibrant rainbow of leaves to brighten up this darkest day of the year. Happy Winter Solstice! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ #botanicaladvent

Todayโ€™s #organic co-op box plus one spaghetti squash not pictured. [We were short one so mine will get dropped off later today]. So many of my favorite foods in this share. ๐Ÿ˜‹
GOT ANY RECIPE IDEAS? I love getting inspired by your ideas!

[bok Choi, cilantro, radishes with greens (the tops are edible, did you know?), red leaf lettuce, white mushrooms, green beans, a pomegranate, sweet potatoes, grapefruit, yellow squash, bananas, tomatoes and Snow Sweet apples] ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŒฟ

So I accidentally left my gift to my husband just inside the door this evening, so when he came home from work today, he walked in the house and it was the first thing he saw. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #botanicaladvent

Anyone else struggling with the short days this time of year? Well the good news is that tomorrow morning is the winter solstice so after this, we get a bit more daylight every day until June! Happy to have found myself nearby to this pretty spot at sunset today.
