Outside the temperature has risen to just above freezing and the melting snow on my neighbours roof has slowly dripped down creating these very Christmassy icicles on the holly bush.
Inside I have holly and ivy decorating all the picture frames and at last we have the tree. Its a very tiny tree from the village shop since the weather prevented us from venturing out to the Christmas tree farm.
It was the winter solstice yesterday and I like to follow the tradition of having lots of evergreens in the house.
Now the grocery shopping is done and the house decorated we are all ready for Christmas.
Season's Greetings to everyone, have a really lovely holiday time.
