After seeing the first of the Christmas mince pies in the local supermarket at the end of August and then the full array of Christmas goodies such as puddings and cakes just very recently. I suppose it didn’t surprise me that on one of our foragings into the local woods that I found a holly brush with some of its berries showing.
There is just something just so seasonal and contrasting about green leaves and shiny red berries.
I love Christmas. I always have such grand plans for preparing for Christmas, but I never seem to get round to them. I am determined to this year. Perhaps I need to start making a list of the things I would like to do this year.
Just in case you were wondering, it is only 102 days till Christmas!
