What a Day for a Daydream

Es Precioso

Last weekend in my garden and Winter Light at the Oxford Botanic Garden






Oxford Botanic Garden Christmas Tree


 How I wish that I had saved those Poppy and Nigella seed heads just a little bit longer now!







It was a perfectly gorgeous set up at the Botanic Gardens. The moon was full, the lights were stunning and although the toes lost feeling quickly despite the double layer of socks; a quick trip to the mulled wine/hot chocolate tent and greenhouse helped warm things up a bit.

I believe I even eavesdropped in on a proposal by one of the candlelit ponds.
They took a few selfies; narrating out loud: "#shesaidyes",
and when they walked away, I heard her gush: "Es Precioso!"
Ahhhh.... L'amour!
