"Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home."
John Howard Payne
It's fun to travel, to get away, to see and experience new places.
But when all is said and done, I'm always happy to come back home.

I don't think I've actually done any staged still life photography since our move to our new to us house.
It has fabulous light, much better than our former home.
I'm excited to try some staged still life in this light, and need to take the time to do so.
Meanwhile here are some unstaged photos shot at my home today.
One of my favorite things to do in the "bleak midwinter",
is to buy a few green living things for indoors.
A hyacinth to force bloom indoors is a favorite winter tradition.

Grocery store herbs are another inexpensive and fun thing to grow indoors,
and if all goes well, they can be transplanted outside in spring.
Who says herbs are a kitchen only plant?
Here's a cheery pot of oregano growing in my living room.
What about you, are you a fellow homebody?
What do you do to bring some cheer to your environment in the "bleak midwinter"?
