Boozy Fruit

Rudolph's nose so bright.

It's that time of year where one goes from merely eating too much food to indulging in so much rich food that one spends the first half of the following year attempting to lose it again.

Having made a few batches of mince pies, last night I finally got around to soaking the fruit in my home made sloe brandy.  I then took a few shots of the deliciously boozy fruit before baking the Christmas cakes.

Fruit travelling at warp speed.

Petal Power

Yesterday I received a very large box, and inside it these beautiful flowers.  I took some photos last night but the lighting was so poor that this first photo was the result!

I had a play with the colouring and am rather fond of the grainy seventies look.

However this morning I put them on the windowsill and ended up with these lovely vibrant images.

I think it's the texture of flowers, particularly the petals and leaves that really make them so appealing.  Fabulous desk top material!
