A cheerful light!

 For as long as we have lived in Highland (since 1976) the owners of this house on the corner of Wellesley Street and Fairview Avenue have lighted their chimney wreath during the holiday season.  It is a welcome beacon when coming home after dark.

  1. Very cheery!

    We haven't had any snow yet in Germany. It's not really *that* cold here, but definitely not as nice as it was in Portugal! :)

  2. It is impressive that they are able to hang such a large wreath so high onto masonry. They must have a tall ladder. Or professional help.

  3. Somebody has to climb up pretty high to get that wreath up there.

  9. Don't know if that ice storm is heading your way. Your shots look lovely and not threatening, weather-wise. Take care!

  10. It's a lovely scene, but I get frostbite even thinking about that cold! (Thanks for the Capote recommendation - I'll look for it.)

  11. Very nice. Gives a whole other meaning to "We will keep the light on for you!"

  12. That chimney is crying out for a big wreath. Glad that the owners were listening.

    You have been there since 1976? You win. We bought our West Hartford house in 1980, 33 years ago.

    Thanks for your note about Mandela. Being there during his mourning period was extraordinary.
