Christmas Colors and the Solstice

It was a beautiful day ! The sky was so blue. It was probably about 40 degrees but perfect for a walk at our favorite near the house trail. I have blogged about this trail before. Today I decided to focus on Christmas colors. I have a favorite Christmas song called"Christmas in the Northwest." There is a line, "Christmas in the Northwest is a gift God wrapped in green." This is so true!

Enjoy the beautiful blue sky!

These red twig dogwoods seem to be growing wild.

While yellow is not a Christmas color, these were so pretty in the sunlight, I couldn't resist taking a picture. (Yellow twig dogwoods)

Everywhere you look, you see these beautiful tall evergreens!

A little red and green!

Today is the winter solstice. Our sunset is at 4:22. Tomorrow sunset is at 4:23, the light is coming back!
