I didn't put my tree up this year, relying instead on Christmas cards and candles to decorate my living areas, so I was delighted as Maggie and I walked this week, to find this tree a few blocks from home. The native Christmas tree had begun to bloom just in time, and today I took the camera to take a photo just for you. Even looking at the tree now, my inner smile is as wide as the Nullabor - I feel like it bloomed just for Maggie and I.
Can you see the bees buzzing happily in the photo below? Yes, the little black dots! Can you feel the warmth of the summer sun as you look at my blue sky?
I could not resist including a photo of Maggie snuffling through the dry grass.
