It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Here in South Australia at this time of the year leading up to Christmas the jacaranda trees are in bloom. They are so beautiful with their bluey purple flowers. It always makes me think of the song  "Christmas where the gum trees grow".

Christmas where the gumtrees grow,
there is no frost and there is no snow,
Christmas in Australia's hot,
cold and frosty's what it's not,
when the bloom of the jacaranda tree is here,
Christmas time is near.

You can't be grumpy and sing that song!

Another thing particularly associated with South Australian Christmas is the delicious cherries grown in the Adelaide Hills. Here is an image I created to capture the mood of Adelaide Christmas, the iconic cherry and the heart representing the love that is what Christmas is all about.

This is another image from my narrative project. These happy little mice are enjoying the summer outdoors!
