2012 Solstice Countdown . . . 1!

Big Horn Medicine Wheel, Wyoming USA

Those of us  who are avid gardeners and living in the Northern Hemisphere can't wait for the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. Then the days will begin to lengthen and we can look forward to the gardening season once again. Whoo-hoo!  This year the solstice occurs on December 21st, and to celebrate I'm posting a photo-a-day countdown with some of my favorite photographs of 2012.  Enjoy!

That's Duncum Mt. and Sheep Mt. behind with some of the best alpine plants in America! The Bighorns RULE...I gotta get back there this June! You're making me terribly homesick for summer...

Panayoti, this photo was taken in September during my first trip to the Bighorn Mountains. Fell in love! Will be back!

Yes, David, the sun *will* shine on ... happy New Year!
