A WHITE CHRISTMAS IN SHROPSHIRE

 A white Christmas in Shropshire -  snow in the countryside, snow in December

A white Christmas in Shropshire -  snow in the countryside, snow in December

What a treat it was to get snow in December!

It felt so festive and although the country ground to a halt (standard) it made for a lovely weekend in the magic of snow at Christmas time

I was in Shropshire for the weekend and only noticed that snow was forecast as I turned up at my mum's. The prospect of snow always gets me all excited like a small child. We have a traditional sledge that my grandpa had made many years ago stashed away in the garage and I couldn't wait to dust it off and head for the Shropshire hills.

Here are some of my pictures from a snowy weekend in Shropshire to get you in the mood for the festive season. Grab a mulled wine, put your Christmas jumper on and have a scroll
