Here's the second crib

Quite a traditional one, which we have in the living room. We've got paper as straw, cotten wool and talcum powder as the snow

This is most unusual cloud formation I think I've ever seen. They were very high with a hole in the clouds with wispy clouds 'pouring' out. The shadow the wisps produced made it look almost like a funnel cloud. This was taken late this afternoon in southern Mississippi.

Before I read your description, ClaraSue, I thought I was looking at swirling snow!

Speaking of snow, here's Winston again yesterday, asking to be let in out of the snow storm. Trouble was, he went to the wrong door! Whilst I was trying to coax him to the right one, our hostess spotted him, grabbed a big towel, let him in through the dining room and scooped him up in her arms, where he cuddled contentedly for some time. Her own little dog was not amused!

And yet another crib, but this time in my bedroom I made the crib figures on plastic canvas 6 years ago - Mum designed the Ox herself!

My Firecracker vine is coming into flower too early , due to our warm weather. It shouldn't flower until CNY Day. But it has taken about 5 years to get to this stage(covering the whole wall) so I should be happy.

Some great pictures above; I reckon the 'hole in the clouds' was obviously where a UFO had recently emerged or exited
Nice crib scene Jane, and how I'd love those blooms in my garden ren - though right now they'd survive only a few hours I imagine!
It's consistently cold here, and below freezing every night, but still no snow.
Here's an image of one of our wildlife paintings by artist David Perkins, a Snowy Owl squabbling with an Arctic Fox over a lemming.

Great Photos everyone. Not much to take photos of here, except snow. Sorry Picqero I know you want it to snow, here is my street on a mostly sunny day.



The plows had just finished so it looks neat and tidy.

I've seen a few nice doorways recently, here was another near where I park my car in Temple Fortune.

This is the other half of the photo of the strange cloud formation that I posted yesterday. This one was taken about an hour later and 50 miles down the road. The blue color is the shadow of the clouds that were "pouring" out of the hole.

Holiday squeaky toys. Winston doesn't play with them, so they do for decoration.

This is probably my niece's favorite "Sesame Street" character.

Today, I am showing my Christmas Card from Sue. It arrived several weeks ago, but haven't had the chance to photograph it so far. It certainly is one of the prettiest cards me and Mum have got this year!

THis is one of the trees in the lobby of the Penninsula Hotel where I went for lunch today. The pageboys and doormen have worn those pillbox hats for decades.

Just a typical view of Golders Green Road with a bus, but when I come home from holiday or am on holiday these are the sort of scenes I welcome and miss. It's the ordinary views we see all the time that make somewhere home, and luckily many of mine are nice ones as there are some really awful places in London as well. I just don't take photos of them.

Hi Santa, you look like you could use some more cookies. I'll put out extra this year.

I think you're right, Santa could do with fattening up a bit. I'm sure a few of those fantastic pirate cakes would help

I wandered around my street this evening taking photos for the Christmas Lights theme, so am using one of them here, too. These are on my next-door neighbour's fence, and are quite pretty blue and white stars, though that doesn't show up so well in the pic.

Those look like they are LED lights. Is that the case?

Mincepies are ready to go to my friend's house where I am spending Christmas. If they last. If they don't , well, I guess I did buy a giant jar of mincemeat.

mmmmmmmm Ren! That what Mum will be doing over the weekend - mince pies and sausage rolls!!
We know that Santa is always dressed in red. But one of my friends got me a very different Santa some years ago, from Germany

Me and Mum are funny about ornaments, they only get displayed when we like their faces But we really like this German Santa
