Advent Calendar December 2nd

My own version of an advent calendar to keep myself amused between now and the 25th. I wish I had a way of making the pictures hide behind little doors! This is a beautiful spherical tree in the environmental centre. It is from the snowy time in February.

So pretty! I've tried 'training' trees but without success so now they just grow naturally . . .

Ooooh, I like that. A local junior school is in the process of making a sort of living den in the playground. They have trained some bushes (it may be willow?) over a frame and in summer it looks fantastic.

BEAUTIFUL tree... I love gardening, but not sure my green fingers could to that! Happy Days, Sarah :o) ((HUGS))

A lovely photo, just to get us in the mood for Christmas! There was a little bit of snow on the Carter Bar this morning when we went to Morpeth!

Advent photos! Brilliant idea Sarah. :)

I have an idea on how to make a door. Upload the advent photo to your Flickr and copy the photo's url. Then do a screen shot of a blank white screen, upload that to Picnik and use the "create" tab to write the day's number on your white "photo." Save that to your desktop and upload that image to your blog. Edit the html so the white "photo" clicks through to the actual Advent photo on your Flickr.

Sounds complicated but it would be fun and I think once you got into the groove it wouldn't be too hard. ;)

xoxo!
