I spotted this shrine last week and finally got back out there today. Usually a simple cross and simple adornments mark the spot at a roadside shrine but lately I've been finding many that are much more elaborate. There was nothing to identify who the unfortunate one was who was killed here but this memorial is truly extra special. Like the shrine I found HERE, this one was surrounded by a garden. The family literally planted roses and set rocks out the define the area.
This was also a Christmas shopping day and Bella Viva Orchards is a good option. If you like sending dried fruits, check out their website. This small local business is located in Hughson and gathers all of their fruits and nuts from local producers. We are so lucky to live in an agricultural community. The fresh produce options are endless.
And finally, what says Fall/Winter better than a Pomegranate tree arrayed in its full red glory?
