A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.

Day 6/366

6th January.
The Feast of the Epiphany.
The arrival of the Magi.
The end of the Twelve Days of Christmas (the 5th of January being the twelfth day) .
Women's Christmas (Ireland).
Traditionally the day to take down the Christmas tree.

So this morning I turned on the Christmas Tree lights for the last time this season and photographed the fold-out Nativity Scene in readiness to store all away once more.
As a child, the Magi would not arrive on the Nativity Scene until the 6th of January.
As a child my family did not have a Christmas Tree.
I was about thirteen years old when I begged my father to cut down a casurina tree from along the creek that bordered our acreage.
I decorated it with cotton wool.
