A White Christmas

winter blue gazeboSnow.  I heard the weatherman say that we might be getting snow on Christmas day.   Now don't pack your bags just yet.

The song for this post is White Christmas, sung by Michael Buble.

Now have you had snow where you live yet?  Yes, I am dreaming of a White Christmas.

I love your pictures! They truly make me dream of a White Christmas!!

We had a bit of snow last week but our temps have been in the 40's and it melted quickly. Perhaps this week, they say, I hope so!

We have had two major snowfalls, but it hasn't stuck. You do know that John is responsible for this, right? That man can pray. He's on the last bit tomorrow so it's wide open after that. I told him that lots of folks were beginning to pray in earnest for snow so he'd have to get a move on.

I know that you'd like only a dusting, but wouldn't getting snowed in while visiting in Vermont be kind of lovely after a fashion? Dreamy I say.

Enjoy a wonderful Christmas there...

Karen we have not had very much, one major dump but most of it went and just a skiff on the ground. very rare for here. It was a year ago that you got me interested in picnik and I need to thank you for that. I have had a lot of fun with it. I think your gazebo is wonderful and so wonderful in your pictures. merry Christmas if I am not back before the holidays. hugs.

Beautiful snow pictures Karen! We had flurries in October, but nothing since. It looks like our Christmas is going to be sunny and in the 50's. I would love a little dusting of snow.

Have a wonderful Christmas....

Sweet friend,

We have no snow here, but that is not changing my view that even here, this is the most magical time of the year. Lovely photos as always, for they reflect your love of New England, and the magic that is found in the garden of delights...Anita

No snow here, in ages. Me thinks we are having a "Little Ice Age But With No Snow", this year in the NE. (Europe had a Little Ice Age, a long time ago, so why not?)

A dusting for Christmas would be lovely, but I'm not "holding my breath" as they say. :-)

Snow in south Texas...that's a dream of all the children...won't happen.

Your gazebo is so beautiful with or without snow.

Keeping you always in my thoughts.....Merry Christmas my sweet friend,
