    Lovely photo. I am glad we don’t have the frost right now.

    Now that’s a gem of a photo!

    By the way Cherie, do you know your profile link leads to your old blog rather than this one? I clicked on your comment at my place to see what you were up to here, and was led to your old place instead, although it does then have a link to here. A bit of a roundabout journey though :)

      I will investigate the best way to leave comments on blogger blogs :-) I think I have got into a habit of using my blogger profile because it was the best option when I moved to my new blog. I think blogger has more options available to me now so I need to experiment :-)

    We have had spectacular frosts here, crisp, beautiful and bracing. Real “glad to be alive” mornings.

    Red goes so well with green, thinkest thou not?

    • H. insciens says:

      Indeed. have always profoundly disagreed with the saying “Red and green should never be seen except when worn by an Irish queen.” I love red with green and I am neither Irish nor a queen, but perhaps I just have bad taste (as must holly bushes, rowan trees, cherry trees, raspberry bushes, strawberry plants, woodpeckers?… the list goes on…).

      • CherryPie says:

        I love to wear red and green together, I think they look quite good :-) Or maybe I just have bad taste and look a disaster ;-)

        • H. insciens says:

          Well you’ve got more chance of passing yourself off as an Irish Queen than I have. (I hope).

          • CherryPie says:

            Do I get to wear a gold crown? Do you think I could fool the public for at least one day?

            Maybe I should just remain a princess in waiting…. Hmm! maybe I am just a bit to old for princess ‘in waiting’ or otherwise ;-)

            • H. insciens says:

              The pictures I found on the web depict a nice red crown and a green gown. Ideal :)
              I think the last Irish Queen reigned many hundreds of years ago so expect your palace to be in a state of some disrepair (and your King too).

    What a beautiful photo. It would make a lovely Christmas card.

    • CherryPie says:

      I will bear that in mind for my Christmas cards later this year. I always make my own and in recent years have been using my photos on them too.
