These red carnations were part of the Christmas display in my church; they were taken out of the church last Thursday, but are still going strong almost a month later. What a bargain!

Bonne Annee

I spent Sunday evening putting away the Christmas decorations, clearing out some of the older stuff and having a  quick tidy-up, as today is Epiphany - yesterday's Church service included a sermon on the significance of the gifts of the three Magi, gold, frankincense and myrrh. While listening to the sermon, I recalled T.S Eliot's poem "Journey of the Magi", which I remember learning as a student many years ago.
