Morning Jo, Morning Dove

Early start today ....another Christmas do for me today, but a meeting to get through first.

Yesterday's lunch was good - my baby photo was guessed on the basis of the vintage of the picture.  The others are all mere youngsters, who had their early years captured in technicolour.

And good morning to those that follow

Great tree Dove - can spot a partridge AND a pear

Keep meaning to ask Dyers what the balloons are at the top of Alfie's tree - it looks like it is about to float away to the man-in-the-moon (.....half the world away ....)

Belated morning all.

So glad they have a plan LilyP - albeit one with a slow burn.  Take it easy.  Invest in some good books to keep you occupied over the next few months.

Bad news for Yvie's daughter - no wonder they say moving house is one of the great traumas of modern life....I'm sure it doesn't have to be that way, there must be a better system

I, too, have a works Christmas lunch today ( and another tomorrow - been working for two teams this year).  Today's involves baby pictures .....this is what this chicky used to look like you think anyone will guess

Morning all

No PM's here either ..... maybe we're too southerly

More early flowerers going for it out there ....witch hazel this time.  Won't have anything left to flower in January and February at this rate

I've loved looking at all your trees - all so different and all so festive.

Did ours yesterday ....once upon a time it had a sophisticated  red and gold theme, but over the years family mementos got added, and it is now just full.  But full of stuff that brings back memories, and makes me smile

We have our chimneys swept once a year too Jo.

Tree up, house decorated, now shattered.  But it all looks lovely .  Sweet dreams all

Which witch hazel?

I have Pallida too - lovely big flowers, and good scent.  I also love Diana - only faint scent, but red flowers and the leaves go brilliant scarlet in autumn - really special

Brrrrrrr Fairy .  We've only had 2 frosts here this year much for the DM's coldest winter for a century.

Would be great if you have some pics of your garden through the seasons to put together too.....and everyone else for that matter.  Cheers up a grey December day
