Christmas Eve

It started with light snowfall yesterday morning and continued throughout the day.  By late afternoon, there was a blanket of white and people were hurrying home.  This was the view from our window as night fell.

The snow continued overnight and Christmas Eve morning dawned a dull grey.  The garden had been transformed overnight and there was a hushed stillness to the landscape; what sounds there were being muffled by the winter blanket.

This is the view of our house from the end of the driveway.  Fortunately, we were able to get out without waiting for the plough to come and clear it.

The trees are heavily laden with snow now and we are planning a walk this afternoon.  We are certainly having a white Christmas this year.

All that remains is to wish each one of my readers a very Merry Christmas. 
May this season be filled with peace and joy.
