Hello everyone! It's good to be back. I hope the holidays were as wonderful for you all as they were for me. I spent the weeks after Christmas in South Carolina with my folks, and I just returned this weekend. It was not as warm a respite as I usually am fortunate enough to experience, but compared to Wyoming, it wasn't bad. Actually, Wyoming was downright pleasant when I returned - it was up to 60 yesterday and positively lovely! I think we are in for some snow later in the week, however. That will be good for snowshoeing, at least.
These photos are of the berries on a cedar tree in my parents' yard in South Carolina. They happen to live in a beautiful little spot called Cedar Island, and yes, the cedar trees abound. It's so funny to move away from where you have spent most your life, and find yourself rediscovering the little things when you return. For example, I didn't remember there being berries on cedar trees. Especially pretty little dusky blue ones.
