Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Autumn & Winter in Uruguay

We arrived in Uruguay just over five weeks ago; we were met by the beauty of late autumn. Were now ending the second week of official winter here. The temperatures last night dipped to almost 0 degrees Celsius!

Were enjoying the beauty of God's creation all around us. Shortly after our arrival, Elizabeth and I enjoyed a late afternoon walk...

The late autumn flowers were beautiful:

The roses are still blooming...

I digitally captured this Dalia (I believe) before the whole plant became one of many victims of the first hoarfrost:

Sunsets, as seen from The Ranch, have been impressive:

The fog has also been impressive:

The eucalyptus bloom in autumn and winter:

And theres nothing quite like a eucalyptus log fire in the hearth:

DJM was captivated the first time he saw that much fire!
