Beautiful images and wishes , Cliff and Botanica :)
All the best of the season to you both and your families, and all other forumists :)
I'm still on solstice ;) Happy Solstice to all, whether you are celebrating mid-summer or winter!
One image from outdoors a few days ago, and the indoor flowers (Mammillaria sciedeana and M laui subducta- thank heavens for winter flowering plants :) are from today, right on time for the solstice!

Rick- that's a big crowd  ;D
Lori- were you up there yourself or is this one of hubby's pics? I'm not generally ambitious enough to go to where there is more snow in winter  ;D

Cohan, you guessed it - I swiped it from Stuart's backcountry ski trip pics from last week.  ;D  I'm afraid I'm pretty sloth-like in winter, as I've mentioned before, though I love visiting Panorama Ridge in summer!

Much rather go in summer We did go up to Kootenay Plains once in mid-winter and it was lovely- including some time walking around on the frozen but bare river! But snowfall is moderate to low there, and no long stretch of dicey highway to get there..
