I know that the winter we experience here is very mild compared to other places... but still what i would really like to do is find a nice cozy cave to move into for the next two and a half months until the arrival of spring. Winter and I do not get along... for many years we have not been friends - the good memories of winter comprise of snowmen and central heating, both of which we do not have here.

So having not yet found the above mentioned cave... i try to find other ways of escaping. but the hardest thing is the early closing of the days and never having enough time ...

    speaking as someone who has holed up that cave... it ain't so pretty.
    i would trade a cave for that bougainvillea any day. the petals in that ripped bowl are so lovely.

    love those little bowls julie, beautiful shape and color.

    i can imagine getting through winter without central heating is no fun. keep warm.

    I never experienced a winter which is so different from our winters here...As you say: icy and crisp and clear is a true winter.
    But noooooooo! Not a cave. Caves so often are wet and cold and dark like the winter days I don't like...
    Lots of tea and candles and a fire!!

    And what I see on your site today is spring ;)
    "Springen" is the German word for "jumping"...your bowl jumped out of shape!
    I like that!

    I would love to hibernate :) I prefer the warmer climates too, though in the UK there's little chance of that. Did you make those bowls? they are stunning!

    spring will be here soon enough... hang on...

    beautiful colour and imagery in such a cold time of the year.

    i have a portable cave, it is a HUGE black jumper which is very thick and stretchy which i pull over my tucked up knees so my whole body is in it's warmth. it is the only synthetic piece of clothing i regularly wear because it is so comforting. I can scoop up the cat and cradle him in it when I walk, like a papoose.. or a cat cave, with just his head sticking out.
