December Sky

Short days, a sun that hangs close to the horizon, and quick-moving weather systems combine to make some very pretty afternoon skies at this time of year. On Tuesday, we got some little breaks in the swift clouds that caused the light to constantly change.

What's that I see? Blue sky?

This is a noyer (walnut tree) out in the vineyard. It's along the walk that I take daily with Callie and I've put pictures of it on the blog many times. The temperature on Tuesday got up to about 14ºC (upper 50sF) and I enjoyed wearing my baseball cap instead of a knit hat and not needing gloves.


  1. It's warming a bit in Paris. We went out and walked up to l'Hôtel de Ville last night. Took the bus back.

  2. I love that walnut tree against the winter sky! Happy New Year's Eve eve from Eve;-)

  3. Walt , Do you know what they call 'a bit of blue sky' in French? "Une culottte de gendarme." :))

  4. I think I've already said it, but it's one of my most favorite times of the year. Weird, I am.

  5. Beautiful sky Walt. Glad it is warming up a bit!
    Bonne annee a vous et Ken!

  6. goodness you must have froze just wearing a baseball cap.
