What a difference a day makes!

Last Summer, I visited a garden of a school friend and posted many pictures here.  With a Winter storm predicted, I wanted to visit Cathy's yard again, along with my Mom, to see how her yard looked after all the plants had gone to sleep for the season.  What a pleasant surprise!!  Greenery and white lights have replaced the hostas and flowers.  Her fairy gardens now have gnomes and snowmen.

Carolers greet guests on the front porch

Some of the bird baths/fairy gardens have been switched out with greenery and statues

The pond and some of the bird baths still held water and seed was scattered about for our furry and feathered friends

Planters that once held annuals now have greenery in them

The fairy gardens are just as cute now as they were last Summer

The back door entrance is just as inviting as the front

I need to go by some evening so I can see the lights at night

. . .    . . .    . . .    . . .    . . .    . . .    . . .   

And the next day, the snow came. . . along with ice and wind 

These are pictures of my 'buried in snow' back yard

My two goose statues were buried up to their heads . . . at least they aren't completely buried like my turtle, bunny, and birds

The bird bath on the deck looks like an infinity pool

Everything was plastered in ice (including my husbands truck) thanks to the rain that proceeded the snow and blizzard strength winds

After the sun came out, everything was glistening from the ice

We even had enough sun to charge the solar lid on my canning jar

I hope everyone is safe and warm.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful time with your family!!


  1. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  2. Hi Judy,
    I hope things have been going well for you. I am so ready for spring to get here! Your place sure looks pretty in snow, though.

  3. Spring is just a couple of blocks away..
