Christmas Snow, A Few Days Early

Last night we received about seven and a half inches of snow. Around nine-thirty, while it was falling quite heavily, I went outside to take these pictures of our lights. Though you can’t see snowflakes in the pictures, the falling snow seemed to reflect quite a bit of ambient light, giving the atmosphere an unusual glow. It seemed never to get dark last night.

It looks like it is going to be a white Christmas. Happy Holidays!



A Little Hope


The foliage on my amaryllises from last Christmas only just died back a few weeks ago. Since it took so long for them to go dormant, I was starting to wonder whether I would have any flowers from the bulbs this winter. Then a few new leaves started to appear in each pot a few days ago. There is hope yet!
