What absolutely gorgeous photos. The snow on the berries (or crabapples) is especially appealing.
We had a Christmas Eve snow in 2004 that allowed for snowman building — and a few snow angels, too. I’ll never forget a Norwegian woman, here to work at NASA for a few months, running through the snow, barefooted in her nightgown at midnight, telling everyone within earshot, “This like home! Like real home!”
🙂 Ahh, cute story! It’s interesting the different things that can make you home sick. When we lived in the Canary Islands, it was grass for me!
Beautiful post. There is something truly magical about how snow transforms everything!
Thank you. Definitely a touch of magic there! 🙂
Your garden looks so beautiful in the snow! The berries are really pretty… or are they crabapples? Magic!
Thanks Cathy! Yes, Crabapples … and amazingly, they have been cleared by the wood pigeons already!
Beautiful frosted garden, the best kind of Christmas surprise to get one in the holiday mood!
It happens so rarely these days! It was lovely to see and absolutely got us in a festive mood.
Love pictures, Allison – I love the look of fresh and unadulterated snow, especially when one doesn’t have to travel anywhere in it. Well done for the enthusiastic snowman, especially as 7.00 am is still very much in the dark!!
Best time to beat those footprint creators 🤣 … but actually I just couldn’t resist the pull of fresh sticky snow when I got up.
