The view from my office window is of a car and lorry park. If I look to my right I see a long stretch of loading bays and more lorries; to the left the Council tip. By no stretch of the imagination could it be described as pretty. But last week I saw something beautiful: a lone, and usually uninteresting tree, but on that day it was so stunning that I thought I’d share it with you. Sadly it lost its leaves just a few days later,
Going through some photographs of our 2018 holiday, I came across this one which I think was Cartagena or it might have been Valencia. Either way, what an amazing tree trunk!
I’m usually a ‘Keep in it December’ girl but Christmas has already sneaked in early this year – my presents are wrapped, the cards are written and the shopping is ordered. I am going to put my Christmas trees (a white twig one one in the sitting room, and a conventional one on the porch) up on Monday. I’ve always left doing so until the second weekend in December so that Christmas doesn’t begin until after my younger after my son’s birthday but this year, like so many others, I’m in need of a lift to the spirits.
How about you? Will you be putting your tree up early…or perhaps you already have.
