My Twelve Days of Christmas #2

On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to meTwo turtledovesAnd a partridge in a pear tree

The Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and last until the evening of the 5th January – also known as Twelfth Night. The Twelve Days have been celebrated in Europe since before the middle ages and were a time of celebration. I may not have a partridge or a pear tree, or even a turtle dove, but I have selected 12 photos from December / January to get me through this period.

My alternative Christmas Tree – Grevillea ‘Pink Pixie’

    What pretty blooms, Jude – shame they can be on the tender side

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes. I’d like to try one, but I don’t have much in the way of shelter up here.

      1. Cathy says:

        And presumably they would not be cheap to buy so not worth risking if you can’t be sure you can give it the optimum conditions

  2. A very pretty colour Jude – we used to have a peach coloured one in our garden here in Perth but alas it didn’t thrive. I think pinks and greens are a lovely colour scheme for Christmas 🙂
