1 ~ It's Nearly December
November is ending and what could be more appropriate to represent this time of the year than a poinsettia from my Tenerife garden. Growing tall and needing no special attention, they bloom faithfully from mid October until February, equally gracing roadsides and terraces, public parks and private gardens.
Christmas will soon be here and the streets in the town are being decorated with illuminated festive garlands. The Teide has had its first early mantle of snow which by now has all but disappeared with the recent rains. The days have turned chilly and it's time to light the evening fires.
