Great idea Tim!

I took an hour or two off from the wrapping this afternoon to make a little something for this thread. Merry Christmas everyone!

And an inspiration to us all. As is the work of everyone. But I have to say Mike's snow forced me to try my hand at it.

Happy Holidays to All!

P.S. This is from a photo of a very rare October snow this year. We haven't seen any since!

wrapping?? I salute you..it's only the 20th

apologies for posting at such a Baberish hour, but I'm stuck at home dogsitting whilst the rest of the family are stuck in a 10 mile traffic jam on the way home from a Rihanna concert

so depending on your tastes, I may have drawn the long straw

here's my long evening's festive effort (conditions not conducive to photography)

Merry Christmas all

Not my choice mate!

My wife turns into a festive machine from mid November, all three of my 'kids' have birthdays in December; 3rd, 4th and 27th, so there is much organising to be done...and she does love to organise!

Love the seo, that mess of snow covered weeds looks like a couple of Christmas trees.

Merry Christmas all!

Mike

Never heard Rihanna but my guess is that I'd agree you were the lucky one........

And you might want to put a copyright on 'Baberish hour' before Phil beats you to it.

Just dropping in for a brief appreciation of the work on thread - marvellous, joyous and uplifting efforts - well done gang! May be one or two ideas well worth nicking - erm, I mean allow to influence me . . . :)
Ed - not sure about the long straw regarding Rihanna. Musically indifferent, visually - quite a delight, methinks.

It will probably come as no surprise to the folk who know 'my ways' that the attached 'festive' image contains no birds or wildlife whatsoever...

However...i felt the urge to post it...!

Have fun everyone....and all the very best...
