As Christmas Becomes a Memory…

23 Jan

Four weeks have passed since Christmas Day.

Memories– of get-togethers with family and friends, of gifts, and maybe of spiritual contemplation –perhaps still hold a special place in our consciousness.

Recently at the local bushland park I observed the last of the Christmas Bush, fading away. Still lovely, though its cheerful glow had weakened in intensity.

And so, as one season passes, another comes into view.

Easter is just around the corner, and already the supermarkets are selling the first of the ever-popular Easter Buns.

I wonder will the Easter Bunny visit me? Visit you?

Love milk chocolate!

    I hope the Easter Bunny visits you Margaret, but if you point him in this direction later, can you please remind him I’m a lover of dark chocolate.

    Lovely Christmas bush, we don’t have anything like that except for a Christmas Cactus that only blooms this time of the year. Candy is sure the word around here with Valentines just around the corner and a lot of my projects this week as I work in my Walgreen drug stores and Walmarts are to promote candy sales. Have a wonderful day my new friend.

      Thanks, Odie! Glad you liked the Christmas Bush. It’s a vivid, rusty red at Christmas.
      The sweet things in life are such delightful treats!With Valentines Day, and then Easter coming soon, we’ll be in line for chocolates galore. 🙂
