Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

December Photo Project 2012 -- Day Twenty-Five

It's a White Christmas here in Massachusetts! A light dusting of snow fell overnight, with still just a little bit more sifting down, like confectioner's sugar onto a Christmas dessert. Looks like none of it has stuck to the roads, so driving should not be affected. I took some photos of the landscaping outside our
 hotel. We got word that our son had put the bird in and that Christmas dinner is on the way! We'll venture out in a couple of hours.

Nigel commented on one of our first days here that the trees here are so short! And bare. It's interesting how artificial the row of evergreens in the hotel parking lot looks, when you're used to the real thing.

Today, Christmas Day, is the last day of the December Photo Project. I'd like to thank everyone who came along with me on this photographic exercise. I enjoyed it and I hope you did too. It was a learning experience for me. I discovered some tips on how to improve my composition, and also some tricks in iPhoto to boost color.

Merry Christmas to all my readers and blogging friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day full of great food, good friends and family and good cheer!


  1. I really enjoyed this photographic journey; thanks for taking us along. You love snow so much. May you have a wonderful time with your family and as Nigel would say, "Don't fall on yer arse." Merry Christmas!

  2. Merry Christmas...have fun out there in Massachusetts!

  3. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours too!

    Much love,
    Sherri xo

  4. Yay for a white Christmas! Thanks for sharing your photos with us the past 25 days. They've been fun to see. Merry Christmas!

  5. Merry Christmas, Alison. You're in Massachusetts? I hope you're having a wonderful time. I just heard from one of my coworkers that they had a white Christmas. They live in TEXAS! Nothing but rain here in Oregon but that's okay.

    Safe travels and I hope your new year is full of blessings.


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
