Sorry, got my Decembers muddled, that's last year's tree. This is this year's, but they are pretty similar.

Quite agree David! 

My "Christmas Rose" in flower!  


 Although this was last year!

 Merry Christmas!! Nadolig Llawen!!

Greetings from us 'ere in Pembroke Dock, Doc Penfro - coastal South West Wales


Second 'go' at loading a festive treat: a wondrous 'flat-pack' tree from the Ukraine exchange visit made so many years ago, it still graces our home each Christmas as a reminder of distant friends and lasting friendships!!

Yes, the weather was quite pleasant, Ann....unlike those poor people in the south of the country.

Hope your day was as you would have wished.

During a recent visit to Chatsworth House I took this shot of the Joseph Paxton's Conservative Wall. Built in 1832 when he was head gardener for the then Duke & Duchess of Devonshire. It was the forerunner of our greenhouses of today and is now a grade 2 listed building.....Paxton went on to build the famous Chrystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851.

After a brilliant start, it's proving difficult to keep this thread going.....not sure I want to keep posting pictures to myself. 

Hope it doesn't fizzle out!

Gardening Cape Verde style.

this is my son and parters new puppy, its not a good picture because i am still not sure about settings and of course the pup kept moving 



30/12/2013 at 09:33

Thanks for your pics, KEF & Ann.

KEF - Is the building material wood or stone?

Ann - If this is your new Fuji, I would have thought auto wold have been your best option......nice pup!

I think it's a bit soon to say that David, people have been busy with Christmas. And winter is less inspiring for photos, unless it snows.

Here is a photo that reminds me of summer, the long border at Waterperry. But I'm just a happy snapper!

Ann - Further to my last message, I would just add that I  have recently bought a Nikon COOLPIX L27 compact camera for taking those quick impromptu pics. It has a 16MP sensor and slips nicely into my top pocket.......just £39.99 from Argos.

David, I think concrete type blocks that were skimmed over. Looked good on the outside, but stairwells and such gave the feeling of being in a prison, well what I imagine

Cheers for that.

Anyone noting my post about my Nikon L27 Coolpix compact camera may wish to take a look at this clip:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQV3xfYDtgI  or www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-s5cpW7UeU

I would disagree with comments about it being 'plasticy'. On the contrary, I find the build quality excellent.
