candles and some thoughts

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
