My World: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Our Christmas Tree, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee.  December 5, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

Winter has come to the Cumberland Plateau.  It’s cold and it snowed most of Sunday.  It was light flurries most of the day, but the driveway became snow-covered after dark.  I don’t want to mention any names, but one member of the family was very happy that day.

Since it’s turned cold, the roses in containers have been moved to the garage where they will hopefully survive the winter.  The roses in the beds have been pruned back and covered, so they, too, are ready for their winter nap.

The yard looks somewhat drab now — at least when it’s not covered by snow.  But that doesn’t mean that everything is drab.  Our Great Room looks bright and colorful now that the Christmas tree is up.  And with a fire in the fireplace it feels as warm as it looks.

    Snow is always beautiful. Saturday we had plenty of it, but now it’s almost gone and then everything looks grey and dirty.
    Well I hope that the mainroads are in good condition and not slippery.
    Your Christmas tree is awesome! Have a great Christmas time!

    That looks the place to be. If you ever come to Australia you are welcome to play in our garden. There is no need to cover plants in winter and this summer with all the rain the garden has gone feral.

    A welcoming place for sure. It looks cozy and Christmasy!

    What a glorious tree! But I don’t envy you when it comes to snow. We haven’t had any of the white stuff yet, and that suits me just fine! Stay warm.
