Peace, Love, Blotanical



I was just playing with the pictures from the Festival of Trees. This is what I got. I called it first "Rainbow of Trees". But I love the name "Peace, Love, Blotanical" more. Why not? We are peaceful, loving people, aren't we?


This puts me in the right mood to cut my own tree.

  1. Hi Tatyana~~ Sounds more than good to me! It reinforces the fact that we're all kindred spirits here in Blot-world.

    Just a mild frost at my abode but colder down in the valley. I guess it's time to stop lamenting and whining about winter and just go with it--speaking to myself. I'm such a weather wuss. At least the roads are clear--no ice and snow to contend with.

    And from the looks of your gorgeous photo, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

  5. Love the collage of trees. "Peace, Love and Blotanical" works for me!

    Don't drink the tea! Its bad! At least that is what the word verification says, lol! I hate doing them, but I get a kick sometimes at the words that pop up.

  8. Wow! It's really decorated. I think you use so much more decorations for Christmas then we do. The tree have to wait until the 20th at least. Hope you show your tree when it's decorated / gittan

  12. My daughter and I were just remembering the time we would have a live tree and plant it after Christmas.:D We kept it outside until a few days before christmas, and by that time, all the animals in the neighborhood had christened it, if you know what I mean. So, when we brought it in, our indoor animals did too. Needless to say, that when we planted it, it did not survive.:D The great idea of having a live tree and planting after Christmas never became a tradition.

  13. Why we are just the most peaceful people around on any day but Monday's ;-)
    Your picture collage is so pretty. I am crazy for the purples.
    Oh, I love the frosty webs on the bush behind the bird bath.For something so delicate looking to be so strong. I bet that bird doesn't drink much from the birdbath.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  16. Beautiful shots. It's beginning to feel like winter here. Pretty cold for So Cal, didn't get out of the 50's today, we have the fire going & all the outdoor decorations up. Waiting for the storm & hoping for rain!

  17. The collage of trees is beautiful Today the 5th we had our first frost, too! And snow just a few miles north of us! I passed frosted trees on my way to work this morning.

  18. Lovely collage! Yes, we're peaceful people.

    We had a very hard frost this morning... down in the 20's.

    PS I've not been able to use Blotanical for months, so I've stopped trying. It used to work fine, but it was taking so much time and not working smoothly to click around anymore and was crashing in some places. I've been too busy to try to figure it out sufficiently so that I could write Stuart about it.

  19. We had a very unusual snow and killing freeze on Friday, so I would say Winter is here. I, too, am a sissy about cold weather.

    I love your trees. I am debating whether to put up a real tree or an artificial tree. Such decisions! Either will be fun!

  20. I think the title fits perfectly! I have found there is no friendlier, peace-loving group than gardeners--we all just want to make the world a more beautiful place.

    Great photos--my friend and I attended a local festival of trees a few weeks ago, too. The trees were beautiful, but some of them a little overdone, not something I would put in my house. I doubt you'd put a clock at the top of your tree either:)

    Lol, my word verification is "crytic"--I'm not a critic of the tree festivals, just practical at home:)

  21. Lovely collage, it's gotten me in the mood to put up my tree too.

  22. I enjoy going to Festival of Trees events Tatyana! It gives me ideas for my own tree decorating. These are great. I really like your icy birdbath shot too. My birdbath would be completely frozen thru by now if I didn't have a heat for it!
    Are you decorating today???

  23. Thank you friends for your comments! Oh, how I love them! Yes, we are decorating our tree today. Actually, the boys are doing that already. I think I need to go and watch them, OR.... I have some nice glass ornaments there... Boys and glass is a dangerous mix!

  24. As rainman would say,"very sparkly very shiny"
    Love this collage! And I wish you family a joyous holiday season.

  25. And a wonderful photo collage too! I'm almost finished my Christmas shopping so next project is the tree...after the apparently-coming snowstorm passes, that is.

  26. I like the tree which have clocks on it, very creative & interesting.

  27. Lovely photos! That bright green moss is just gorgeous.

  28. I wrote a comment earlier but I guess it didn't go through. Wow, everything is so serence, cool and refreshing here. I think I wanna take a dip in the urn together with birdie if I can fit in. Your pictures are splendid, Tatyana!

  29. Yes, that is a nice sentiment. I was just talking to someone about blogging yesterday, and she was asking how you find other blogs like yours. Of course, I told her about blotanical. Her eyes didn't glaze over too much, but I didn't go into all the details, either. LOL

    I sorted out our ornaments before our grandson came over to help put them on the tree, and only included a few of the glass ones. Well, my husband didn't like having the box on the floor, so he put it on the table our tree is on. The box got knocked off, and one of my favorite glass ornaments from the 50s or 60s got broken. I don't know why I didn't take that one out, but am glad I didn't have the fruit shaped ones in the box.

    As always, your photos are fantastic!
