And a partridge in a pear tree
When I was still at school, I did a big crayon drawing of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
They were eating fruit from a tree, quite peacefully.
There was no snake because this was not the Tree of Knowledge – it was one of the ‘safe’ trees.
But try as I might, I couldn’t stop people asking, “Where’s the snake?”
So this time I’m going to say it myself: “Where’s the partridge?”
The answer is: “It’s not Christmas!”
Anyway, this little tree, overburdened as it is, does look as if it belongs on a Christmas card.
I’m adding a note here, for my much-valued friends and followers, that from the end of this week I’ll no longer be posting regularly on this site.
From August 18th onwards I’ll be doing a daily post with a photo and comments similar to my usual ones on our Self-Publisher website.
