Southern California "Snowman"

It's been cold here the last few days, but not cold enough for snow. Here's a "snowman" made out of what we call "tumbleweeds," because they roll around on windy days. I used to see a lot of them when I was a girl, but I guess most of them have been eradicated with fewer vacant lots around. The eyes are made out of pine cones (from the tree in the background) that were sprayed black. The snowman was painted white. Normally, tumbleweeds are beige.

Merry Christmas!
