Happy Holidays everyone. However you celebrate I hope your day is filled with good cheer, family and friends, much good food, laughter and a book or two under the tree. Thank you for the comments, reading suggestions and kind words that have been shared over the course of the year. For me they are daily presents for which I am much appreciative.
This weekend I visited Omaha's Lauritzen Gardens, which is very festively decorated and captures perfectly the colors of the season, so thought it would be nice to pass on a few images here.
There is a beautiful little village set up in the atrium that looks vaguely reminiscent of many of Omaha's well-known landmarks.
And there are examples of just about every type of poinsettia that you can imagine (I had no idea there were so many different varieties).
My favorite is this little cable car (there were trains, too) running along the tracks.
It was too cold and snowy to walk in the gardens, but I'll definitely be returning in the spring.
I'm looking forward to another bookish year. Thanks for visiting and have a Very Merry Christmas!
