A Mid-Week Break

 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

It certainly looks that way, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes it's the simplest of things that mean the most at this time of the year, Ray.

Ginnie Hart: "Old Christmas feeling" is something I hope we never lose, Peter!

Ginnie Hart: Now THAT'S a good idea, Elaine! The combination is perfect, isn't it. smile

Waiting to be taken home and make it look 'Christmassy'....
Wonderful detail of the many many flowers there were on display.
Ginnie Hart: You know I love the simple things of life like this, MLMA. The combination of these two together made me feel very Christmassy. smile Thank you.
so colorful smile
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Joshi. smile
It does indeed with these tones Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I have always liked red berries like this at Christmas time, Richard. smile

Indeed Ginnie - it can only be December and all that goes with it
Ginnie Hart: My thought exactly, Chris!
Hey, the Mexican (or Italian) flag!
Ginnie Hart: Well, then! There you have it! smile

Yes, you are right - today I'll wrap in my garden furniture - and my flower pots I'll bring into the cellar - although the hydrangeas are told to be winterhardy. A fine flower stall in Oostende!
Ginnie Hart: It's that time of the year, indeed, Philine. To find the plants that are winter-hardy is really special, I think. Mother Nature sure knew what she was doing. smile

I like these colors and the setting-up time of Christmas. For me, Christmas keeps a certain magic which I maintain by avoiding its mercantile side to favor that his atmosphere of love
Ginnie Hart: I so agree with you, Marie. The simplest of joys and pleasures are what Christmas is about for me. The lights of a Christmas tree, for instance, calm me down because they're so quiet. smile
It sure is Ginnie. Only just over a week away!
Ginnie Hart: I should have struck through "begginning" because it's been like this for a long time already, Bill. But still, it's very special, isn't it.

Yes, it is. When is it this year? I hope it's not in DFecember as the shops are always so crowded then. wink Like Elaine, I would buy both as they would look very pretty togther.
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Alan. I hope you're not forgetting Christmas for someone very special???! smile

Partout cette fête se prépare
JP
Ginnie Hart: It really is a festival, JP, isn't it!
... and mistletoe is a must have.
If you wanna have a good kiss-mas. wink
Ginnie Hart: Now that you mention it, LC.... grin

Aren't these gorgeous - the perfect festive decoration.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mike. I like the combination of the two.

Very festive smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, John. I thought so, too.
What excites me is seeing the tulips in the bavkground. I am hoping our local tulip shop will open before Christmas.
Ginnie Hart: I'm glad you noticed those, Mary. They are definitely part of my joy for this time of the year, even though I don't expect to buy any for our home. The hyacinths are enough. smile
It is indeed Ginnie. You've definitely got it here.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Janet!

They sell berries and dry kindling at a flower stall? Typical belgians ...
Ginnie Hart: HA! I can't begin to tell you all the Belgium jokes I've heard these last 5 years, Louis. grin
We finally got round to sorting our tree etc.out on Monday and then had a church meeting at our place yesterday evening. A couple of carols, a quick prayer and plenty of food and mulled wine, not a bad evening at all, Christmas is here.
Ginnie Hart: It's the mulled wine that adds an extra touch, Brian, isn't it! smile
It's looking that way!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Tom, indeed.

Very Christmassy Ginnie smile The red looks good against the silver
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne. It was love at first sight. smile
a joy to see such bright colours here, Ginnie
I think the vegetation makes much nicer Christmas decoration than the commercial crap.
