What do you do when you (finally) drag the christmas tree out from the garage, start to assemble it and then realise that the stand has disappeared?
Why, you grab a few stray bricks from the backyard and wrap them in Christmas paper and strategically position them around the base of the tree so it doesn’t fall over.

See? No one would ever know! I tell you, I’m a genius.
A couple of years ago I went to a blogmeet to meet Tracey and she made us all little birds. I thought I’d post a shot of it on the tree, resting just beneath the two sparrows we have at the top of the tree. (No stars or angels here… we like our little birds.)
And one last shot of a Christmas prep. Borage flowers in ice cubes. Borage flowers are edible and Keith told me about this when I was over at a garden tour at his place a while ago. I think they’ll look very pretty bobbing around in a glass of lemonade. (It’s going to be a warm one this year… 26C and humid.)
