Sparkling Snowflakes and Stunning Sunsets.

34 comments


Last week, the snows arrived …

… my dogs were surprised to see white everywhere …

… had icy noses when they sniffed the frozen flakes !

Then the thaw …
.. but some shrubs wanted to keep their snowy hats …

The chilly skies dazzled, with superb sunsets …

and now all around, the gardens are crisp and cold …

… determined to create the magical aura of Christmas

Three French pigeons, two Turtle starlings…

… and a Teddy in a Christmas tree …

We wish everyone a very happy Christmas …

… near to your favourite people and pets …

… and most of all, stay healthy and safe …

Sorry Terra nearly missed you out..
Very festive they all look, Sapphire has quite a selection to choose from Terra but guess she thinks the blue one is hers, I do love the santa's reindogs ,they look happy and bright eyed, raring to go on the sleigh run, lol...
Merry Christmas to all of you and Best Wishes for 2018.xx

My shrubs like their snowy hats too. They can have mine. LOL I hope Truffle & Neptune enjoy the snow - more to come. Have a wonderful Christmas & Happy New Year!

Thank you, Linda, Feverfew, Seaburngirl, Shirley, Callie, Balcony, Homebird, Sue and Bathgate. Enjoy the festivities ! x x

Truffle and Neptune love to dress up in their reindeer antlers, ready to help Santa. Sapphire's favourite colour is blue .. perhaps because that's what she sees when she looks in her mirrors !
