It's Christmas season, and with it comes lights, in great abundance and profusion.
But first: an insect! Haven't had one for a while, so here is a Leaf-Footed Bug for your education and amusement:
Now, back to the lights. It seems that right after Thanksgiving, people rush out and start decorating their houses. The first two weeks in December glow brighter each night as more lights come online.
Surprisingly, from what Alan has been told at work, most people decorate their gardens long before they actually get their Christmas tree. We have got ours now and it's looking all festive :-)
Here follows a series of pictures taken on Brodie Lane, and Denbar Court just off Brodie. Denbar Court is particularly impressive; a whole entire cul-de-sac in which every house has a dazzling display.
These first two sit opposite each other somewhere around Brodie and Sesbania Drive. The first one won their local lights contest.
Now we're in Denbar Court.
So, if I don't post again before the holiday, I wish all our readers a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
