For some time, I had been considering joining Donna's Personal Photo Challenge. This month's topic is lovely but not easy (for me), because we decorate the home and the tree only one-two days before the 25th and because we haven't really had snow yet.
In addition, it is very saddening that Donna and her husband are going through difficult times.
However, yesterday it snowed all day long, and this morning I was able to take photos of the two small Christmas trees (in front of our home) with some snow. I'm not very satisfied with the photos, but at least they have colours and lights, two important and cheering things!
Some contrast has been added to these photos.

The colours of these lights are actually red, green, and yellow, but through the snow, the red looks pink. The spruces are not very fine specimens, and with the pink lights they do look... a bit "girly", but we don't mind, we love them anyway!

Do visit Donna's interesting blog A Personal Photo Challenge for more Christmas scenes! Thank you, Donna!
Because it's Sunday, I will be joining also Judith at Lavender Cottage Gardening for Mosaic Monday. Thank you for hosting, Judith!
I hope you enjoy your Christmas preparations!
Have a blessed third week of Advent!
