It is just two days to Christmas and the temperature was 38 degrees today. Some friends from Naples are visiting and enjoying their first Christmas in Summer. We were amused to see this Santa Clause riding a cow on the back of a 1928 Ford truck outside a farm gate nearby.
I have not made my 'official' Christmas arrangement yet. I will show it to you next week.The arrangement below is using Strelitzia from the garden and red dock weed from beside the creek nearby. I like the space between the two main stems and the feeling of movement in the dock. The bowl is by Petrus Spronk.
I send my greetings on a hot summer day in Torquay, Victoria and would like to wish you peace at Christmastime.
