In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Extract from In The Bleak Midwinter, my favourite Christmas carol,
words from the poem by Christina Rossetti
Photographs of our garden in the snow taken a few Christmases ago.
Photographs of me in the rain, wishing for snow, taken today. I'd been planning on wearing a long pale blue silk skirt, but decided against it to protect the silk from trailing in the water....
Wishing all you lovely people a very merry and well dressed Christmas!
