Looks like my home too, but not this year, or at least not yet!
No white Christmas down here this year...Predicting lower 70's for Christmas Day..
Beautiful and amazing pictures., everyone!!!!!!
We only had a dusting of snow and will be gone in no time..
Terry where are you from ??.. A different language spoken there I see,
Holly thank you for telling me about this post..!! I do have some winter pictures from Maine before we moved to Tn. to retire...
I'll just start out with a few at a time. will post more tomorrow. I love it when the snow sticks to everything,,
We've had a little snow so far this year but not the usual amount that we normally have, so these photos are from last year, ...
I have a second home in Southern Spain, and just to show the difference in the climates between the Uk and Spain in winter..these are photos of where I have my home...taken in the month of December
More Winter Southern Spain..
But sometimes when it rains...it rains with vengeance and it destroys everything, the gota fria is feared widely in Spain and happens about every 7 years....
yikes.!! and I have to ask.. what is that slide and are they sliding into what looks like water? lol
Your pictures are just breathtaking , Holly.. beautiful.
Here was one of our bad winters in Maine.
That's the promenade that's been broken up by the heavy rain Louise...the whole area sliding into the Mediterranean sea... it was a terrible disaster, I was there at the time, fortunately no-one was killed or seriously injured but lots of homes and businesses were lost!
Beautiful area for your other home, Holly. Have you considered moving there or at least spending most of the year there when both you and hubby retire? I would, especially since your daughter is there.
I already retired there over 10 years ago chrissy...hubs remained working in London and would commute...but after several years I got bored to tears with the eternal lunches and beach culture , and the difficulties with the language even tho' I can speak enough Spanish..and the red tape and bureaucracy is a nightmare too...so I came home..but yes if we both retire we'll spend much more time at the house again, it's a beautiful place , but I wouldn't live there permanently again...and btw my daughter isn't anywhere near us in Spain LOL..she's over 6 hours (fast) drive away.....it's quicker to fly from the Uk about 2 and a half hours..probably 4and a half total including time spent at the airport to where she lives than it is to drive from our respective homes (both in Southern Spain) to visit each other
Okay, I get it! Know what you mean, guess just spending a little more time there is enough.
Holly , how terrible that happened. Heave rains can cause a lot of damage. I can only imagine what it was like to see that like you did..
I knew you were from NC Shirley but didn't know you were near me. And here I thought I'd been so savvy and secretive about keeping my exact location a secret on the world wide web I'm too lazy to resize pics from my camera (but plan to eventually thanks to Terry's tutelage). All of these photos are so enjoyable.
This is where I live
This is a picture of a Robin who was visiting our garden last winter ( they visit all year actually)....I put the frame around it to make it puuurtttyyyy
Nice Holly! I love all the glass windows. It must be light and airy in your home.
Thanks Lara ..it's light at the front which I love but the back not so much...mostly brick with smaller windows... but we're lucky because we're south west facing so we get a all the sun in the back garden..
Great pictures, everyone. I love seeing where everyone lives, whether there's snow or flowers. They're all beautiful! Since we rarely get snow here, my pics look similar year round, except we have lost most of the leaves off the trees. I thought I'd finally gotten them all bagged up, but new ones appeared this week, ugh.
Wonderful pictures, girls.
My icy pictures. Bubba inspects the frozen birdbath, accompanied by Libby and Daddy.
Then around to the ice covered cedar tree.
More to follow.
That is ice on the ground and trees, not snow.
Close up of ice on the grass.
My dogwood tree.
More to follow.
Reflections in melting drops
Blue sky and snow reflections.
Here can still the window of the car parked at the curb. By the end of the storm the car was completely covered with snow, you could not see the car at all. We are still waiting for the plow trucks so that we can get into the street.
