A few more frosting photos from yesterday.

All of the beautiful snow has either blown off the trees or melted off.   I am hoping for a little bit more for Christmas morning.

The birds and the squirrels were having a difficult time getting to the feeder.

The lilac bush was happy to see the thawing weather.

 There's nothing like a bright red poinsettia at Christmas time.  I think when we were visiting Dominica (my all time favorite cruise destination) we saw a Poinsettia tree.  It was huge!

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  1867

It's time to get those last minute Christmas things done.  Are you ready?
