Winter Berries...

Yesterday I went to my favorite flower shop "Rubia" and purchased these winter berries. I love the bright red color. They were busy at the shop preparing Christmas bouquets. What caught my eye were two-colored pink tulips with cedar - so beautiful.
Just got back from a trip to the Library. Can't be without books! Looking forward to reading "Ellis Island" by Kate Kerrigan.
What are you reading right now?
Christmas time's for dreaming 
Thoughts of long ago... 
Holidays of childhood, 
Memories all aglow.
by Alice Kennelly Roberts


  1. These look so pretty. I really love that Christmas quote too.

    I'm in search of a new book right now!

  2. I love winter berries.
    I am reading a collection of short stories by Kate Atkinson "Not the End of the World"

  3. The "winterberries" are lovely. I have been wanting to go buy a few branches to brighten up my mantle. I finished "Daphne" while we were traveling. I haven't started anything new yet. I am feeling a bit behind. Bonnie

  4. The winterberries are so nice, they can stand alone in a vase and make a statement. - You sure got to see so many beautiful booths in Chicago, I bet everything was so much more stricking in person.

    Thanks for stopping by and following my blog, I will be back to visit yours also!

  5. Trying to catch up with peirodicals.I had a short one this month in Birds and Blooms Extra.I looked for something nice like this but haven't found it, no art work hardly at all in my new place.

  6. Red winter berries are beautiful, very seasonal. I love them!

    At the moment I am reading a large old book which my husband bought for me a long time ago. It is a collection of Christmas magazines from the late 1880's, beautifully illustrated. Each December I get it off the shelf and enjoy reading through the very old-fashioned stories. I find the old advertisements very entertaining.

  7. Dear Heidi,

    how are you??? Are you ready for X-Mas??? The winterberries are beautiful. The book "Ellis Islands" sounds good... i love stories about emigrants . I'm reading "Der Beobachter" von Charlotte Link... its a psychological thriller. I dont know how to translate the title... it means something like: the observer... the watcher.

    I wish you a nice and easy "Pre-X-Mas-week"! Take care! Ursula from Munich

  8. Liebe Heidi
    Wunderschöne Bilder zeigst Du uns!
    Ich wünsche Dir eine glückliche Weihnachtswoche und grüsse Dich herzlichst Yvonne

  9. Huhuuu, liebe Heidi

    Uhi, die Bilder finde ich ganz herrlich. Das rot der Beeren strahlt nur so :) Ein richtig schöner Blickfang.
    Hm...zur Zeit lese ich überhaupt nix *schäm*. Ich komme einfach nicht dazu. Nur den Kindern wird am Abend immer eine Gute-Nacht-Geschichte vorgelesen...

    Viele, liebe Grüße sendet dir die Nicole

  10. Your Christmas berries are picture perfect!
    Merry Christmas to you Heidi and to your family.

  11. These are so beautiful. You could even use the first picture as next year's Christmas card, it has the perfect feeling of Holidays in it! I'm afraid I have too little time for reading these days (which really is a shame). I hope during Christmas I'm able to catch up on my reading!

  12. So pretty! Very Christmasy!
    That book sounds good. I need to get to the library....

  13. I really like Winter Berries around Christmas time. These photos show the bright redness of them, and are truly beautiful. Merry Christmas!
