It finally happened! It started last night and continued into the morning…wonderful, wet flakes of snow! And, as I told you in my last post, it was my first white Christmas ever!
The ice crystals hang like diamond drop earrings from my little Japanese maple…
…and the snow has clustered inside the leaves of the holly, making it look like a snowy rose waiting to bloom!
It’s a wonderful winter wonderland in our little neighborhood…the best kind of metamorphosis!
There will be no lunch on the patio or time on the swing set with the grandchildren today! They are at home, not too far away, enjoying their own first white Christmas!
Of course, the staff each took a turn to check out the snow…
…and opted to stay inside and play by the fire…
…which is where you will find me all day today...enjoying a little quiet time after a very busy week! Won’t you join us for a cappuccino? Now, where’s that Sunday paper? Hope you are enjoying your day!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing our first White Christmas! Please visit these wonderful bloggers and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!
