After tending to the Remembrance Day parade and cenotaph ceremony this morning, it ws time to switch gears and get ready for Christmas. Before Shelley's parents venture south for the winter, we had everyone over to observe the Yuletide festivities and tradtions.
Not only does it space out our Christmas shopping over a couple months, it allows us an excuse to indulge in shrimp cups, sausage rolls, spring rolls, antipasto, oysters, shrimp rings, dips and other appetizing delights.
Apropos of the occasion, our Christmas catcus was in full bloom.
Our botanical achievements are so few and far between, they're worth noting and celebrating. Merry Christmas!
