Sylvan Season's Greetings!

Greetings of the Season to everyone! I wish you all a very happy holiday, and thank you all for your beautiful and interesting blogs, and your friendship over this year.

The Winter Solstice marked the first anniversary of Sylvan Muse. I was too busy to post for the 21st, though I did manage to look at this wonderful little video of Newgrange. I also think RuneE's Solstice photo is brilliant!


I don't often write poetry, but was inspired to pen this earlier this year - and thought I'd post it to join in with TFE's Christmas poetry event, Santa's Poetry Go-Kart!

Happy Blogaversary and Happy Holidays!
I love your poem, it reminds me of your art and how you've talked about the light on the edges of hedges :)
I'm glad to have gotten to know you through your blog and your art!

Happy Christmas, Monica! Thank you - I've always loved drawing trees!

Merry Christmas (as we say in North America), Phoenix. The poetry is music to my heart and the picture of the trees in their winter slumber are perfect.

RuneE said...

I cannot draw or paint, even when aided with a ruler, so I bow my head in respect for your Christmas card (and I'm glad you liked my photo!).

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your dear ones!

Phoenix C. said...

Merry Christmas, Barbara! (We say this here in the UK too). I'm glad you like my little poem and the trees!

Phoenix C. said...

Thank you RuneE. Your camera is your paintbrush, with which you create magnificent art!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family too!

Hi Phoenix, I really enjoyed this post, especially your poem. I love your header painting with the gorgeous trees and magical lighting. Happy blog anniversary!

Phoenix C. said...

Thank you Diane AZ - glad you like the post! The header painting is one I did as the background to one of my 3D cards.
