Christmas in our house...



It is mid summer here in Sydney and bright and sunny, so Christmas Day will probably be about 30 degrees. The family are arriving in the next few days with a late arrival flying in on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning we will wait for the other two who live nearby to arrive and will then open all our presents together and probably sing some carols at the piano. Then it's lunch outside and Christmas cheer followed by a swim in the pool for some or a siesta for others. There will be catch up calls on Skype too with several in-laws in Europe now that we are an International family. As well, of course, there will be fun and games with two small children, and lots of laughter. This Christmas may you and your family too enjoy health and happiness, and a bright and prosperous New Year.   

This lovely Christmas wreath is made from the NSW Christmas Bush that is a large spreading shrub that develops small, delicate red sepals around the seed capsules in December. Thought you might enjoy this unique Australian Christmas plant.

What a gorgeous wreath. Christmas bush doesn't grow we'll in our heavy clay soils!

Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas and all the best for 2013.
