A different (almost) Christmas view

Most of the people who drop into my blogs seem to be from "up north" - i.e. the other side of the equator to me.

So, this is what Christmas looks like in the southern hemisphere - green and leafy.  We have a had a cool spring, so no brown landscapes just yet - although its only a matter of time.

One closer inspection I wish I had seen the house number on the left hand side - I would have include all of it if I had!



Hope you all have a good Christmas - and for those "up north" keep warm, and for those "down south" keep cool - and for those in the English Lake district - keep dry!!

You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

A kind of different take on the "hanging of the greens" at Christmas. :-)

We do not have a white Christmas this year, here far too warm for this time of year.
I wish you and all your loved ones a very merry Christmas and a good and especially a healthy start in the new year.

From the top half I wish you down under a pleasant Christmas. It must seem strange to see all images and hear about Christmas's in a winter's theme with snow and all.

From one "oop north" I wish you and your family a Happy and Sunny Christmas Stewart. There's flood warnings today for Keswick!

Not sure I could ever get used to a 'hot' Christmas. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. We are 'battening down the hatches' awaiting the storm to strike.

I would prefer seeing your pretty green tree over all the brown leafless trees around here. We did have 70 degree temps over the weekend. Merry Christmas, Stewart!

Stewart ... our Christmas greens here in Florida look a lot like yours ... and today it was 82 F!

I do want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and thank you for the year-round gift you give us -- your posts and comments and especially for hosting WBW!!!

coastal NSW, a very welcome change from the heat of the past few days ...almost half the temperatures; what a relief. Even a very light spattering of h2-o last night! Best wishes Stewart.

And do you sing, "I'm dreaming of a GREEN Christmas" down there?
Have a Merry one!

Wishing you all the very best for Christmas, and 2014, Stewart.

Just off for a Christmas picnic with my 'other half' - a mad tradition in this household!

Looking forward to your posts in 2014.
