To mark the darkest day of the year, I cut some evergreens when I went outside to feed the chickens this morning.
Now we have ivy on the mantelpiece.
And vividly scented, vividly coloured stems from the mock-orange bush (Philadelphus) on the table.
~~~~~~~~~~From now until Christmas Eve I will be sharing, each day, a few photos of what Christmas is like in our house. Cake and board games may feature quite heavily.
