It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas No. 9–Literally.

11 December 2012 8 Comments

Thanks for joining me for the ninth post in my It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas series.  If you’ve missed any along the way, feel free to catch up here!

We finally got a healthy dose of winter yesterday!  Snow mixed with freezing rain isn’t my idea of a good time if I have to be on the roads – yesterday I didn’t.  I was able to putter around my back yard and snap pictures all day.  There is something so beautiful about foliage trapped under ice isn’t there?  Here are a few of my favourite shots.  While I edited these, I listened to Christmas music and sipped English Toffee cappuccino!  It’s in the air.  The holidays are here!  I’m thinking these may end up being my card images this year  – I should probably hop to that!Foliage Under Ice 1One Bud Under Ice Foliage Under Ice 2 It doesn’t truly feel like Christmas for me, until ice makes everything sparkle and a dusting of snow covers the ground.  I don’t think I could ever live in a climate that didn’t have snow for Christmas.  But I guess that’s only because I’m used to Canadian weather.  Do you love or hate the snow?  Does it usually snow where you live over the holiday season?diana

    GORGEOUS photos! I love looking around after an ice storm- so pretty! I’m totally with you on the snow for Christmas thing. I still don’t quite feel in the spirit because we haven’t got a good layer of snow. What area in Canada are you from- I haven’t asked that yet.

    Seriously…you are the most amazing photographer! I always love your images! :)

    And I love the snow, and cozy feeling it creates for the holidays…but I only like it when I’m home and don’t need to be on the roads {aka – work is cancelled or it’s vacation time}, andddddd when it’s not enough to make the power go out. Because Lord knows, I’ve had enough of the power going out!

    Jealous! It was 70+ degrees here in VA yesterday and I just want some Christmas time weather!

    So jealous. We’ve had the tiniest of a dusting and that’s it. Pretty weird for Iowa. At least we have 2 weeks left. Fingers crossed.

    Your photos are gorgeous!
