This is garland up the stairs, photo is rubbish!!

 This is the tree in our Big room. It has roots - the first time we have tried to keep a tree - so it is samller than usual

 This is ancient parent tree which is in garden/dinig/kitchen room. View of hills just not there today

 I do not know where her decorations have gone so it is mostly tinsel  but it is still a reminder of her

Oh Busy Lizzie, you seem to have an amazing garden in a wonderful part of the world.
