Some colors in January

These images were taken at my SIL’s place. My husband and his siblings are very close-knit. Despite the long drive (1 hr long), we are always getting together on the weekends to cook, bond and keep my MIL in good company. One house, three generations. My kids love playing with their big cousins. Its about being a part of and staying connected to one big family. It’s one of those things that keeps you grounded, i think. I always enjoy making an escape out into their garden to see what is growing and blooming. I do that everywhere i go actually. This was two weeks before the Lunar New Year and it was such a pleasure (and an inspiration to the budding gardener in me) to see her father’s trained bonsai kumquat fruiting so beautifully. She also had a 3 yr-old blood orange tree that was bearing fruits nicely. So i picked a few, cut them up, and ate with sea salt to my heart’s content. Then i drank the orange juice she made from another variety (with a squeeze of blood orange for color) that was also from her garden. It was sweet.

    You paint a really nice picture of your visits, they sound like perfect weekend retreats. Thanks for adding some colour to this bleak February day.
