At Christmas there is never a more perfect time for a home to have a fireplace, a place to hang the Christmas stockings.
I keep things simple with my decorations, however Rose Orchard Haus has unusual niches in some of its walls. At Christmas time I change things around a little and give the objects on display a Christmas theme.
A little Christmas bird seems to have snuck into this one.
And nature is not to be outdone in joining the fun. At Whistlers Rest, our bush block, I thought I had seen every plant and flower there was until I saw this among the cypresses this week. It's as if it has grown its own Christmas baubles.
And at Burnbrae Garden the dogwood has its Christmas stars in flower.
Have you put up Christmas decorations in your home? Does your garden have any special Christmas plants?
