4 Seasons

I love christmas, I really do, I love every thing about it. Christmas though is a little different under the southern sky, mostly because it falls in the heart of summer. None of the traditional trimming apply- no warm fires, falling snow or turkeys here. Rather christmas is all about getting outdoors. When I think of christmas, I think of BBQs, of warm balmy days, of sitting out in the sunshine with those I love. And, I would not have it any other way- this is my christmas. 

So in line with this. Yesterday, Holly and I sat out in the garden in singlets and skirts and made a wreath from our garden to hang upon our front door this festive season. And because we are doing it southern hemisphere style, we adorned it with all the beautiful summer flowers. 

Now we have a little bit of summer to greet us at our door.

Whats happening in your corner of the world? Why not link up with a seasonal post?


  1. That's a lovely wreath, how clever you two are! Cheers to a summer christmas, though I do dream of a white one..one day...

  2. Lovely wreath! I like Christmas in the summer better, as well. Even though there is something magical about a white Christmas, I much prefer being able to get out and about and enjoy the outdoors over Christmas in NZ.

  3. I entered my link but it is a hard time of year. I was born and raised in the Southern Hemisphere, so although snow seems 'right' I think I 'feel' your Christmas more.
    The wreath is beautiful.
    Oh, but we certainly get out and about a lot over Christmas. Probably more than we did in Australia, where we spent a lot of time avoiding the heat of the day.

  4. Such a beautiful wreath! I love it! Sorry no link from me this week. Been crazy with the last week of the school term and gearing up for Miss 4 turning 5's Birthday party on Saturday (grrr!).


Thank you for stopping by, I always love reading your comments.
