It was the Winter Solstice yesterday

but I was too busy to post this!
each day is now getting longer and lighter......yes it is, really:)

 Here is my MidWinter offering.....a tribute to the pagan Gods all our ancestors once believed in.
It started out as a cute reindeer decoration and a plastic skull.....thought I had pics of it but can't find them!

 Used leaf stick pins and little bells painted red to represent berries.

I thought I might hang this in the apple trees at my allotment  (to scare away evil spirits and ensure a good harvest next year)  but the other allotment holders already think I'm nuts so maybe not the best idea!
