For the Love of Pine

Happy New Year…time to get back to real life after a long much needed break. Weekly flower accounts start up again  and I am not ready to say goodbye to pine. While many see it as a “Christmas Green” I prefer to see it for what it is evergreen. Now is the time we settle into winter so why not enjoy what it has to offer?  Many will go skiing and enjoy the great outdoors which includes these  majestic trees.  One of my very favorite visual memories is of my one day of skiing near Lake Tahoe. The most crisp day, white snow, lake ahead and green majestic trees all around giving you that open, the skies the limit feeling. This is the time of year they shine since they are the only green we have but they are around all year long adding great texture the landscape.  I still love having pine in big bunches at home or in restaurants  enjoying the fragrance,  lighting candles and sipping tea or red wine while warming up.  When spring arrives I can happily make the switch to something new but right now I am loving my evergreen.  Here are some photos similar to that visual memory I have of that inspiring day in Tahoe and you will see why I am inspired to want to see pine thru out the winter rather than just at the holiday
