We're not only coming to the end of another month but the end of another year. I don't know where the time has gone. Without further ado, here's some more photos which haven't yet made it on to the blog.
I haven't really been out and about with my camera this month so just a few more photos from Harlow Carr and Golden Acre Park Trial And Display Garden, both of which we visited earlier this month.
There wasn't much colour left at Harlow Carr when we visited.
There were plenty of seasonal decorations cheering the place up though.
We managed to find a few flowers still hanging on and their splashes of colour really stood out.
The blackbirds were feasting on the dropped crab apples.
I'm sure the teasels will be attracting the goldfinches, though we didn't see any.
The plant centre was full of Christmas decorations for sale. I thought these wreaths were really pretty.
The knot garden at Golden Acre Park Trial and Display Garden had been planted up with primulas, they'll add some much welcome colour once they flower.
Honesty seed heads. I can never resist taking photos of these papery decorations.
We popped in to the greenhouse in the Blenheim Courtyard which houses a tropical display. The fish in the pond are always very active.
I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas. We've still got Daniel and his girlfriend staying. They were supposed to be going back to uni in York either tomorrow or Wednesday as they've got exams starting next Monday but the areas where each of their houses are situated are under threat of flood. There's another storm on the way which won't help matters so we're just keeping our fingers crossed that we've seen the worst of it and that the forecasted storm doesn't bring more devastation. My heart goes out to those who have been affected all around the country.
Sock Knitting Tips - I often get comments on my sock posts from people who would love to knit socks themselves but haven't yet given it a go, or from people who are too nervous...
