My Twelve Days of Christmas #3

On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to meThree French hensTwo 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. No French hens either, but I have selected 12 photos from December / January to get me through this period.

    Are the three candles there to roast your three French hens? 😉

      Could take a while!

    Definitely! Just collect an egg or two then.

      If I had thought about this more I could have looked for some hens, maybe not French, but I definitely have photos somewhere in the archives! I bet you have some French ones…

        As I was telling Jo earlier, all my French photos are on an external hard drive which I can never be bothered to access. Must Try Harder.

          I’m busy copying photos from an external backup drive onto another laptop as it is not accessible from the laptop I use, no idea why not, technology is a right pain! Best check yours is still working.

    I like the dreaminess of this and the floating blue ‘balls’.
