Winter Solstice

Today we celebrate the Winter Solstice. Our annual reminder that the darkness doesn’t last forever, the days will get longer, spring is around the corner, things will improve. It’s also a great time to remember that shorter days and dark evenings are a great opportunity to curl up indoors with a book or some music, to light a fire or a few candles and just enjoy the quiet time while we can. There’s probably less chance of that this week, with all the last minute Christmas preparations but still it’s good to be reminded that a light is always brighter in the darkness.

Speaking of which, I have here as promised, some pics and a clip from our recent carol singing event at Ballyseedy Garden Centre, which was a lovely end to our first term back singing together.

Walking In the Air
Not quite a traditional Christmas tree but it’s certainly striking!
A free soprano with your Cottage Garden Plants!
Altos amid the bedding plants
Strike a pose – there’s nothing to it!
