Merry Christmas

I used a small yew tree this year for my decoration as I lent my artificial tree to a friend who needed it more than me.  I also gave her the lights and the tinsel because she did not have any.  So my good deed done, I had a look around my garden and I had a small yew growing in a pot which I thought might just do the trick and here it is.  I had to buy a pretty little bird for the top because the branch was a bit flimsy and there was not much foliage up there, but I am pleased with the effect.  The photo was taken on my mobile phone so its not completely clear as I turned off the flash but I rather like the way it has an ethereal quality to it.  So there it is a small delicate wonderland inhabited by a very pretty bird.

I do hope I can come back on this blog next year as I had trouble logging on, I think Blogger is sometimes very difficult and it kept giving me error messages, so I hope to blog again soon but would prefer it to be a bit more hassle free.

I am now convinced that this next year will be one of innovation and am looking forward to it.  Oh and my Redpolls are back!  I thought they had forgotten where I lived but no they were just teasing me.  So I hope you have a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

Your little tree is beautiful, we have a new artificial tree this year, it has the lights already attached and so no worry about arranging them. I've not blogged that much this year and not kept up with reading them either, which is why I missed your previous post. We too use three quilts layered on the bed, I got fed up with duvets. Its much nicer with sheets and layers of quilts which you can add or take off as you want.
Hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Hi Miriam, nice of you to call by and I hope your Christmas is lovely, just like your bed with proper quilts on it.
