My Christmas card to you…

A carousel blurs lights and time. Imagination, woven into barley-sugar twists of gold, rides into adventure…

Carousel, Bath Christmas Market, 2013

Step aboard a portal – to an enchanted forest? To Green Knowe? A visit to the Midnight Folk?

Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths huddle close to a Christmas tree; its branches draped in stars dropped by a forgetful sky…

A yew berry bides its time. An ancient in the making?

  1. I’ll have the horse bound for Green Knowe please! And “Imagination, woven into barley-sugar twists of gold, rides into adventure…” is just gorgeous. Thanks for all the words and shared posts, hope you float slumberly in Yuletime space while December is magic again…

  2. Arriving late, so I must wish a happy new year to you! Reading your seasonal wishes, and being engulfed by these magical pictures of silver and gold, however, make me wish Christmas turned around and was starting all over again! And with 12th night barely 24 hours old!
