Now you know what it's like in Alaska. We had someone deliver fresh pears to our door yesterday and by the time we got home and brought them in, they were frozen solid!

Susan Reaney

It is unbelievable beautiful! We have about three feet of snow on the ground in Minneapolis, Minnesota and except for the shoveling, it is a fairyland! Thank God, we are not traveling! We will hole and and have a lovely little Christmas!

I love your blog!

Julia

DEAR LUCY,
I HAVE BEEN STUNNED AND INSPIRED BY YOUR COLORFULLY HOOKY GOODNESS . BUT YOUR ICY CHRYSTALLY PICTURES LEFT ME BREATHLESS! I DID HAVE TO LAUGH AT MYSELF,THO. IT SEEMS THAT I HAVE BECOME AN OLD WOMAN. THE THOUGHT OF DRESSING UP LITTLE PEOPLE AND GOING OUT TO PLAY WAS "CHILLING". BEING A LIFELONG CHICAGOAN I REMEMBER THE EFFORT TO GET MY 3 GIRLS SNOWSUITTED UP AND OUT ONLY TO HAVE THEM BACK IN TO USE THE POTTY, GET A DRINK ETC 10 MIN LATER. I APPLAUDE YOUR ENERGY.

Nature is very clever at making beautiful decorations - as you pictures show. I posted about this myself yesterday, though not as beautiful as yours! Uh - oh - snowing agin here - now I'm glad I've just finished all my shopping! Have a lovely festive season!

chmurka

Dominique from France

Too cold but so beautiful. The leaves with freeze are wonderful ... Have a nice day.

Catriona

How wonderful Lucy that you feel such joy in being out in the cold. Your children are so lucky that they have the chance to enjoy the snow. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family.

Chris H

Your photos and descriptions are delightful. I love your blog so much. Thanks for sharing your world. Best wishes for a wonderful...white...Christmas!

Patty Nies

Thank you Lucy for explaining the beauty as well as you did. I too love how it looks after a frightful storm. We get them all the time here in Erie, Pa but always there is beauty the next day in the way the ice is or how the snow clings to the trees. Yes, even in the shoveling the next morning at 5:00 AM to go to work, so peaceful at that time of the morning. I've tried to get people to look at it for the beauty of it all but it seems it is a lost cause on most people. Thank you for being you!!

Ohhh what a beautiful Winter Solstice Eve day!

Love the photos of the trees, so incredibly pretty.


Blessings on this Winter Solstice Day, Lucy.

Keep warm.

Another gorgeous post! Where I grew up we always got a lot of snow and it was a regular thing to look out of a window and find fog so thick you couldn't see a thing, it used to make me feel weird, as if the whole world had vanished!

I'd love to be outdoors enjoying the snow, but for the next few days I'm trapped in a freezing cold, damp and mouldy flat :( where the temperature inside and outside is usually about the same and there's limited heating and no double glazing, BRRRR! Can't wait to go home on Thursday!

Lovely to see you out there making the most of our fantastic weather!

Claire Hilton

I almost hate to say this but it was "cold" here today so I put the heater on....oh you want to know the temprature...*cough cough* ummmmmmm ok ..... 20 degrees * sneaks away embarassed*...

Jen

Oh Lucy, I'm SO glad I'm not the only one who waxes lyrical about the beauty of ice crystals or snow covering the land lol! Unfortunately, despite the snow and cold, we have just a completely white sky here, so although I made myself go out briefly yesterday, there's really no motivation there. I'm hoping for some blue skies myself so that I can venture down to the park with the camera of course. Happy Christmas :)

Cathy

Thank's for your beautiful photo's it really look's fantastic but oooh sooo cold. We are looking forward to some hot weather over here in Australia but so far nothing but rain.
Merry Christmas and thank you for your wonderful blog

Sofy

So beautiful and romantic !!!
Looks like a real Christmas !!!

Evfa

Looks very stunning. We have had down to -20 degrees, today we have "only" -10... and about 50 cm of snow here in Sweden right now.

Susan Blencowe

Quite the opposite at my dwelling... we do freezing mid-year.

manuela

WOW, lovely photos, brrrrrrrrrrrrr

so many people seem to have frozen pipes this winter, our hot water taps have given up on us (we don't have a hot water tank), but we still have running cold water.... My wise old dad tells me previously heated water freezes at a higher temperature than cold water does. Oh well, and about a foot of snow fell on Saturday, I went out playing in it with my teenage children and a friend and her 3 20 something daughters..... No snowman but a large snow mountain on part of their drive; the snow was too powdery to form into a head so we considered making a snow castle. We settled for 'spading' spade fulls at each other.... um, how grown up of us all!

Lesley

And yet again you provide some much needed wintery coolness to counter the stifling humidity here... great pics! How could you stay inside with that landscape beckoning?

Fran

What an inspiration! It's not quite so bad down here in Hertfordshire, but we were sledging on the road at the weekend. Think you might have persuaded me to stop hibernating and get outside for a bit...

maggie

Oh it's just soooooooooo beautiful to look at. Thank you for showing us all your lovely picturs.

Alenka

Dear Lucy!

Isn't the weather amazing? Just like a fairy tale.

I want to thank you for your bauble tutorial. Had to try them immediately. I linked to it on my blog. I hope that is o.k.

Regards,
Alenka
