What a difference a week makes

For the first time ever since moving here to the south we had snow on Christmas day.  It started snowing Christmas Eve, big huge gorgeous flakes.  Now, we did not get as much snow as we did last winter only a few inches, but it was my garden house first snow!
 
Love the way the snow is on the rock wall.
 
Here the snow looks like a candle has formed on this candle holder.
No fire in my little fireplace, but still a pretty picture for an area that normally doesn't see snow.
With today being the first day of the new year we are having warm weather with rain and thunderstorms with the possibility of some being severe.  Hubby told me I'd better get on and blog before the bad weather hits!  I hope all of you have had a wonderful holiday.  Hubby is off this time of year so my time has been busy; just not a lot of blogging time.  More family time.  Now its the new year with another year older coming up way too soon!, but as long as it is a healthy new year with family that is what matters the most.
Wishing all of you the same for a Happy, Healthy, New Year!

Wasn't it great, waking up to snow on Christmas? We were all thrilled and really enjoyed it.
Last night was pretty stormy here, lots of rain and a big thunderstorm. Hopefully it won't get bad in your area.
Have a wonderful and very happy new year!

Brrr... we had a real cold spell here too and finally have a little warmer weather. Wouldn't complain but it's Florida my friend. Have a Happy New Year.
