Earlier in the year, when the spring winds were frisky and the temperatures were rising, I published this picture:
November’s winds are not so frisky, but the temperatures today were kind enough for line dried washing.
Octavia’s sister was here for the weekend, and the idea was that I should join them and go to Chelsea Physic Garden. However, both sisters wers distracted by wine purchasing possibilities, and by the time we reached Chelsea it wasn’t far off closing time at the garden.
Instead we decided to look at some of the Christmas lights. Octavia was driving, and these pictures were taken through the car window. I was in the back seat, so although I could see the lights, some arranged in the trees to look like mistletoe, others like snowflake crosses hanging above the middle of the streets, photographing them wasn’t really an option. Harrods’ was lit up in its usually gorgeous and vulgar way, so unless you looked at the window displays you might not notice anything out of the ordinary.
But it was Peter Jones that charmed. Part of the John Lewis group, their Christmas ads have become part of the season’s anticipated entertainment.
This year’s features penguins.
Which background info may help you understand these windows, complete with a bra-wearing penguins and silhouettes of genuine shoppers.
This post brings me to end of the month long challenge of NaBloPoMo. I missed the first day, and joined in thanks to the example set by JanH.
Tomorrow is December and the festive season is upon us. As the late, great, Dave Allen used to say, goodnight, and may your god go with you.
