Have a great trip catching up with old friends DD

Berlin news awful.  Went to that market a few times in 2013 - one of the prettiest.  Such pointless violence.

Back from a great couple of days in London - cracking meal out last night, and muchwandering today in the sunshine.  Went to the new Design museum - very good.  Lots on sustainability and the challenges of climate change, so I was all eyes and ears.

Love those wedgewood baubles too - very effective and highly original

we have collected a few German wooden decorations overthe years - the ones that swirl round by candle power .....can remember all the fabulous weekends we have had at Christmas markets whenever they come out again

Love candles in glass holders tooπŸŽ„πŸŽ„

Very foggy here - can't see across the garden 

Decorating our tree today - rest of the house was done last week, but we have saved the tree so Chicklet can join in.

One of the nursing homes we visited yesterday was perfect, so thats Dad sorted when he comes out of hospital.  As well as being clean and friendly, it has views over Southampton water so he can watch the boats going too and fro (keen sailor, my Dad).....he's already requested that his binoculars are added to his packing list.  So happy that things are falling in to place

None of my others are flowering GD - think this one is being warmed up on account of it being surrounded by concrete

Lots of colour on here - inspired me to go searching round the garden for the first time in weeks (not often here in daylight atm)

found a brave little primrose self seeded in our steps - it must cower every time we clump down the path

and the viburnum bodnantense doesn't photo well, but is pumping out honey scent like theres no tomorrow
