My one and only nod to the festive season. Every year since I can remember the tree on the far side of the path has been decorated at Christmas. When they first appeared it was a mere sapling with just a bauble or two but the decorations, like the tree, have grown. They have now spread to adjacent trees. If past years are anything to go by the decorations will still be there long after Twelfth Night and by Easter they are looking a little forlorn. But eventually they’ll be taken down. Assuming of course they survive the onslaught of Storm Conor.
Could I take this opportunity of wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas.
