Seasons greetings

Christmas is fast approaching and we spent the weekend getting the house in order and putting up the decorations.  This is the start of new traditions for me where things I used to do need to be merged with the traditions of my partner.

Last year didn’t count so much as we knew we wouldn’t be home for Christmas and we didn’t get a proper tree.  Now we are in out new home and have a real tree (not very common in this area).

We have spent the year finding nice vintage decorations and even fount a great old cast iron stand for the tree.

All of that has now come together and our house looks perfect for the festive season so we toasted the lighting of the tree (a new tradition I hope).

Not  quite the perfect picture, a few more bubbles would have been good and my dog took this moment to give me some love so I was fending him off whilst trying to take this in low light 🙂

Merry Christmas!

The furry tree

Spotted this interesting tree recently whilst on a neighbourhood walk.  Looks like the tree is reacting to tree surgery by sprouting growth from anywhere possible.  Not seen this before in a fir tree (at least not to this extent).

Spotted this whilst waiting from lunch…

Taken the a ghost town called Belleville which is located about 8 miles North of Big Bear Lake City in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. This area is now in the San Bernardino National Forest. Parts from the movie Paint Your Wagons were film at this location. Not much more than foundations still remain.  This is a Juniper tree that was the hanging tree; every time that there was a hanging the hanging branch was cut off, so there are many branches missing from this tree.
