Gardening work at christmas.

Well the last thing I thought I would be doing on Christmas day was anything to do with the garden at all...but upon getting up Christmas morning I discovered that I couldn't actually see my garden for all the white stuff!!! Yup, that's right, Christmas day was a white one in my little village....boy was it white...and the first white Christmas I have EVER got up to. It was a perfect still morning with the trees and hedgerows laden with snow, not a breath of wind, and the odd twinkling star!! I live not far from a town which didn't receive as much snowfall as us so I guess we were just the lucky, (or unlucky depending on how you look at it) ones.

It was a very pretty morning that really looked like all those pictures you see on the Christmas cards in the store. Due to the snow I spent over 2 hours in the garden shoveling it off the paths so that we could get around in relative was quite nice to be out there in the piece without traffic going by, I probably should have snapped a load of pictures but only got the one...Sorry.

Woke up Boxing day morning (that's 26th in England) to a much warmer climate and the snow all but disappeared but it is nice to know that throughout my lifetime I have seen a white Christmas!!

Happy holidays to you all. xxx


  1. What a great surprise you had on Christmas morning. As much as I dislike the snow, I always hope we have at least a little for Christmas

  2. Wow, it is indeed covered with white. I wonder how deep the snow is. Two hours must be quite tiring for you Tanya. Hope you having a great holiday :)

  3. How lucky are you to experience a white Christmas. Here's wishing you and your family a lovely New Year.

  4. That must have looked quite magical Tanya. We had a sort of white Christmas Day but it was snow from a few days earlier and not the lovely fresh crispy and crunchy snow that you had - it really does make Christmas doesn't it?

    Happy holidays to you too! Jeanne x

  5. I always love a white Christmas. Our weather for Christmas here in Michigan in the US was almost exactly like yours. We lost our snow late on Christmas day, but now today we have a fresh new layer.


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
