The night was lighted with a full moon and the moisture in the air seemed like a fog on the ground. Hoar frost seemed to develop and we woke to a beautiful Christmas morning. We tried to sleep in but the little dog knows when it is time to get up. He doesn't like the sleeping in part as he has to go outside and then go back to the couch to start his nap.
The hoar frost made the lilac and apple tree of the neighbors seem like they had been sprayed with a coating of ice crystals.
The snow we received the day before was a remarkable amount. It is still with us. I cleared the car off twice from all the snow yesterday. Today it is just a great looking white Christmas day. We just talked to our son who lives in Maine and they are not wearing coats today. It is like 58 degrees F. and there is no snow on the east coast.
The birds are hitting the feeder today. When I took this shot I was thinking there was only one junco on the feeder but I see now that it had company. I have shots of a pair of cardinals but I need to save them for a share on another day.
We have had a turkey dinner with all the fixings today and will have mince pie for supper. It is a quiet day but a very pleasant one to be at home and well fed.
I trust everyone has celebrated this day in their own unique way. I wish you all a great weekend and thanks for stopping by today.
