It's #SublimeSunday on a Sunday again - woo! The weather is still a bit of a mixed bag again though, down South around that London Village they have had flooding over the past few days - motorways blocked at just the time of year when everyone is trying to go somewhere. Fortunately up my way it's just been damp, and cold - and not particularly festive.
Some random berry thing in my dad's garden - what even are these? Anyway another distinctly quiet Sunday - although I was up early to do my Christmas shopping. Struggle to park? Nope. Fighting the crowds down aisles to grab festive tat from the shelves - not a chance? Stand in a queue for half an hour only to find one of the items I selected is "missing it's barcode tag" so "Mavis" has to be called to get another off the hanger - only "Mavis" takes a 15 minute fag and chat with her mates break inbetween while I'm stood like a numpty at the checkout - not a chance once bitten twice shy. Ten minutes on Amazon with the Prime delivery switch on - all my festive shopping should be delivered tomorrow while I'm at work. I know it's not the same as trolling around the physical stores - but honestly - I hate shopping and the Grinch is far more festive then I will ever be.
Dramatic view of good old Brighouse, it's looking so festive....
How's that for a complex photo, evergreen versus deciduous
This one had a light trim from the tree surgeon.
Holly - that's Christmassy right?
No idea what this crazy thing is - looks like a job for Mulder and Skully
Rare non aquatic coral? Winter is full of oddities in the plant world.
The Christmas tree in Brighouse town centre, bless them they try - but really those barriers are not stopping some inebriated wag half inching it to plant in their ma's back yard.
And the high street, a winter wonderland. I was going to walk around and taking some "Arty" photos of the lights, but surprise surprise it started raining - quite heavily. So I just parked up and took photos out of the window - which still got me and the car door rather wet. Still needs must when the devils own Satanic herd decide to poop on your plans.
A crazy #funkyedits to finish from when it was summer...come back please sun.

The greatest challenge we face on Steem blockchain is getting our posts seen, I have always believed the simplest and best value way of doing this is by commenting on the blog posts of others, the more you engage people and interact with them the greater the chance they will visit your own blog and return the favour. Other then spending all my free time commenting on Steem blockchain posts, I also distribute coffee roasting machines and also espresso coffee machines and roast my own Speciality Coffee Range. being one of the premium coffee suppliers Yorkshire including a wide range of filter coffee sachets. Finally I have a dedicated website to my Artisan small batch roasted coffee featuring roast and post packs and super easy coffee subscriptions
