This photo was taken in December 1988 at the second Advent. I love candles, especially at Christmas time. Even during the winter months they add a certain atmosphere. This is a scanned image from a colour slide that I took at the time. In the background you see a rattan chair called a "King Chair" and to the right of that is a calamondin orange tree that I had bought as a very young tree back in the 1970s. Each year it would be full of flowers in the spring time and even later. When it was outside on a patio or balcony, the bees would love it. The tree has been gone a long time. The ants that got into the root ball likely caused its demise. Like all things, there is a beginning and an end! Cherish the things that matter while they're around and we're there to appreciate them! - V
