White Boxing Day.......

The back garden - Boxing Day 2010

White Christmas arrived late yesterday evening, gently covering the piles of dry leaves piled at the curb, leaving a sliver of white on the tops of cold birdbaths and feeders.  As we turned in for the night, after a lovely Christmas Day shared with family, it was already morning...........the loveliness of Christmas departed in soft silence.

This morning awaking at 8 AM, the light was so bright I knew what I'd see on opening the blinds........snow, snow, and more snow!  A Winter wonderland, about 6 inches have fallen and it's still coming down.

I'd been wishing for at least one day of being 'snowed in'. Deep snow, falling for hours, making the world beyond the windows a quiet and beautiful land................making the neighborhood look like the countryside.

       WISHES COME TRUE..................

Hope you each made unforgettable Christmas memories..............may the coming year be special in every way.

  16. So glad that you got snow for Boxing Day, I hear on the news that the whole US East coast is snowed in.
    Stay warm, stay safe, dear Mary.
    BTW Love the Redbirds!

  17. Wow, that last photo looks right out of Narnia in Winter or something. So magical. Love it. Here in Colorado, ironically enough, it was, as most years, dry as a bone. the snow was in the mountains but never made it down here. not one snow flake yet since the early September fall we had one day. LOL. Well, I did enjoy your photos and hope you enjoyed a very snowed in boxing Day too. do you celebrate the with your fam? I always tried to with my kids, even if everyone else was at work-- take it off!

  18. Oh my goodness,,,I had lost track of glad I found you again..I am enjoying my visit very much. I love your winter photos.
    Happy New Year!

  19. You got a beautiful snow. This last snow we received did not stick on the trees as previous ones. Not a very good one for photos, but great for sledding!
    Take Care!

  20. I see I commented above but just re-looking at these photos I'm stunned all over again just how magical your white Boxing Day X,as was. Beautiful and magical
