Were there fireworks near you to see in the New Year?
Though the window the neighbour's Christmas lights shine bluey purple, and the street lights white. Allium cristophii, and the glass rhinoceros, which have been on the window sill of the smallest room in the house, for the past few months. The container is a Victorian medicine or poison bottle.
The neighbours have taken all their lights down now. So it was timely that I took the picture on Saturday night when I first noticed the effects. We are waiting till twelth night to clear the decks of holly, Christmas tree, and other decorations. If I had brought under cover my tub of nearly in flower Alstromeria in time, when I first thought of it, before all the heavy frosts, it would well have been a different vase.
Happy New Year to all the IVOM contributors and readers. I am linking into Cathy, who gathers us each week. Her post is so amusing, out of the mouth's of babes....
