    So beautiful, as always! Michaela, I like the color of the naked vine in the first picture. What is it?
    Happy Winter! Lynda

  • Michaela says:

    Happy holidays, Lynda! The vine is Japanese Moonlight Hydrangea Vine (Schizophragma hydrangeoides ‘Moonlight’). It has stunning, variegated foliage. Blooms are similar to the Hydrangea petiolaris. There’s also a very light pink flowering cultivar. This is one of my favorite, self-clinging vines. xo M

    I have recently discovered your blog and must tell you your photos help satisfy my longing for the silence and solitude nature provides. These photos have a spiritual aspect that helps nourish my soul. Thank you so much.

    Thank you Elona! Happy Holidays :) xo M

    Hi Michaela, finally getting a chance to catch up; I hope your Solstice & Christmas were just grand! Guessing you got the same heavy, wet storm that went through Ottawa (judging by how your shrubby junipers look like something out of Captain Nemo’s garden; ) xo Deb

  • Michaela says:

    We have about 2′ of snow on the ground in my area. Of course it’s hard to say exactly… Given the drifts! ;) M
