Countdown to Christmas

We had Black Friday for two days, and now we're into Cyber Monday.  These two pictures are motion blur images of scenery along the route to Longwood a few years ago.  For me they match the hyper-reality of the retail bombardment that launches Christmas for us now.

Once at Longwood, there's a splendour of Christmas that is magical and makes us want to savour its spirit for as long as we can.

Here are two of the weird and whacky, splendid and entertaining creations.  This first one is made of parsley!

This second one is made of Spanish moss and tropical succulent hens and chicks draping its long branches.  

Longwood knows how to create Christmas - and there sill be more to see this month.
