Happy Christmas.. à bientôt.



Here we are again.. where the heck did this year go! I was going to try and keep the blog running through the Christmas period this year but it's not possible. My Sydney famille arrive today.. two grandchildren to celebrate this year, so exciting! I leave you until the new year with a view of Perth that I had never seen myself until a few weeks ago, spotted quite by chance through the jacaranda trees in Applecross.. don't you love when that happens! It's been a while since I've shown a beach scene, this is where we will be spending time over the next few weeks, five minutes from home. I sincerely hope that you have a happy Christmas.. let's hope that whatever the New Year throws our way we'll be ready for it :) See you on the first of January with the City Daily Photo 'Photo of the Year' theme. Happy next two weeks, take care and most of all stay safe...

    1. I'll take that back. Your jacaranda flowering finishes before Christmas. Ours are in peak bloom now, but will be finished by Christmas Day. Flowering jacarandas for Christmas are perhaps a Tasmanian thing.

    Hope you can enjoy the beach. It looks quite a bit like Florida. I'm hoping to hit the beach for a bit. Weather is great lately.
