What a great perspective!! I love the Christmas decorations - even though we won't be having a White Christmas downunder!

Beautiful photo. Holly and I are one week minus a day apart on our birthdays. Hope her day was as nice as mine was. I turned 36 again this year!

Thank you, Stuart. The washed out area on the left was a result of the lighting on the crèche.

Red, I was in the mountains of western USA and there are people who would gladly trade the single digits (F) for your weather right now!

Duncan, yes, I am and when I got home from working this week in freezing temperatures, it was so warm that we were running our air conditioner!

Revrunner, thank you, and I love Greece as well.

M and Malyss, they range from the spectacular to the very simple, but all are lovely.

Happy birthday, Harriet! I thought that you WERE 36!

Merci beaucoup, Alexa. She awoke to a winter wonderland and had a wonderful day.

Bises,
Genie
