Winter is Here on Nature Friday

Rosy here today to let you know Winter has definitely arrived here on the Northy North Coast of California!  You also may have noticed that some brother decided that, as a result of the 49ers winning last weekend, I had to dress up as a San Francisco 49er for the Nature Friday Post today.
Luckily, I look adorable in red!

Anyway, back to Winter. Although our temperatures don't get below 32 degrees very often, we do get our share of rain...LOTS of rain. We are on a roll this Winter and, as of today, it has rained  for 7 days straight!  Mama stopped by Sequoia Park Gardens in between raindrops to capture a few pictures of what Winter is looking like in our corner of Blogville.

Here is a palm tree blowing in the wind. Some of the storms that blow in from the Pacific Ocean bring lots of wind with them.

All the pretty dahlia plants have been cut back...

They cover them with mulch to make sure they don't get too cold! Mama thought the stems sticking up looked like straws.

Oh Mama do you HAVE to show me dressed up again...let's show everyone the color you found at Sequoia Park Gardens instead, ok??

She found this beautimous yellow flower...it sure looks like one of the dahlias snuck out, doesn't it??

Here is a lonely little purple bloom...

...and finally this cute little yellow flower.  A type of gerbera daisy, perhaps??

We sure hope you find a bit of color during your winter day!

Oh yeah...Arty says I have to say

I don't know, I do like cheese, maybe I should route for that cheese-y Packer team from the cheesy state of Wisconsin instead. 
 What do you all think?

 Show us your nature! 
It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE

  1. Rosy you do indeed look adorable in red. If you lived in the UK you should support the Liverpool Football (as in soccer of course) Club.
    Happy Nature Friday!

  2. red is fabulous for you!!! and we love the yellow flower... it is like a little sun and it gives hope that winter is over soon ;O)

  3. That yellow flower is so cheerful and pretty but you, Rosy, are the prettiest of all in red. Love your ponytails!

  4. NEVER ever root for the Packers. They are our number one enemy. Go for the 49ers and we hope the smash the packers!

  5. Hari OM
    hehe, Rosy, it is good to have balance, so you go for the Packers if you wish!!! Now that orange beauty looks, by its leaf, to be member of the Bellis Perennis order of plants - simple daisy! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. I have laughed out loud at your adorable pig tails, you look like I did back in the 40's, your pigtails I mean. you make a really cute 49er and I love the straws and the little yellow flower pics.. your winter looks lovely even though I would not enjoy shooting between the rain drops. 7 days of rain is arrrrhhh n my book.

  7. I would definitely root for the team that provides cheese!

  8. Rosy you do look 87 kinds of adorable in red...but then I'm a red gal too.
    JUMPIN' Cat fish you piggy tails have made my heart sing with glee and given me a great big cheshire cat smile.
    You N. CA folks know how to have winter. Give your photographer a high 5
    Hugs Aunty HiC

  9. Hi Rosy. Your ears look really cute done up like pony tails. Just so my Mommy doesn't get any ideas... Anyhoo, if it means we get cheese, we will all vote for or cheer for, or whatever you do for ball teams, for the Wisconsin one! Let us know!! XOX Xena

  10. The only flower blooming around my yard right now is one little dandelion that thought maybe it was springtime. It's covered with snow now.

    Dad hasn't been watching football as much now that his Bills are not in the play-offs. But I bet he'll watch the Super Bowl no matter who's in it.

  11. You sure are cute as a Niners fan Rosy. The main color around here this winter is white...as in lots of snow.

  12. Rosy - you look adorable in any color! Love the pigtails!!! Since my Vikings lost last weekend, I don't care who wins the Super Bowl - I just hope it's a good game!!!

  13. Your nature pictures are great but I simply can't get over the cuteness of Rosy! You are definitely the best cheerleader ever!

  14. We think you make an adorable cheerleader!

  15. It sounds like you are having a bit of a winter. Over here in the Netherlands, the regular daisies are all over the place. Someone saw the first ducklings already and even though it seems to go down in temperature a little bit, it is nowhere near wintry enough for me!

    Klem, Mara

    PS: you look very pretty in red

  16. Yes it's cold here in the central valley too, but no snow here. You are all so cute.

    Have a woof woof day and weekend. My best to your peeps. ♥

  17. You are so right sweet Rosy, you are adorable in red! That brrrrr sure looks plenty cold.

  18. OK, Rosy, we will go along with one more win for your Niners, but after that it's has to be Chiefs all the way (IF we get that one more win this weekend too:)

    Love those ears, Rosy.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  19. I say - steal the cheese and root for the niners!

  20. OMD, MA is FREAKIN' OUT abouts how CUTE YOU LOOK!!!! OMD, you gots to send your pic to the Niners gram! Ma is so nervous, she can't stand it....I am gettin' all my Niner gear ready for the game and Ma is gettin' her Niner throw (that has the good ju-ju attached to it ☺), and we are gonna be ready!!! Paws crossed my furiend!!!
    Oh, and your blooms are FABulous!
    Ruby ♥

  21. We're so glad your Mom found some color at the gardens!
    Rosy, you look so cute, just like a little cheerleader! ♥

  22. Mmm cheese...oh yes root fur them ;) We must say you look pretty darn cute in your 49er's gear!

  23. Lulu: "Is there any color you DON'T look adorable in, Rosy?"

  24. You are the cutest dog, Rosy. You do look good in every color. But, I think that the SF colors are better for you than the Packers colors - just sayin'. I love the blooms that your mom found - thanks so much for sharing because there ain't no blooms here!

  25. You are the cutest, we love your piggy tails!!
    and GOOOO Niners!!!!!
    Mabel & Hilda

  26. Oh boy, what we wouldn't do for some rain. The brown landscape is too depressing. Love your piggy tails, Miss Rosy.


We love to read your peemails!!
