Twinkling and multi-coloured, they fill the living room window. Illuminating the darkness of these short days, a small square of merriness piercing the gloom.

We chop up its prickly branches to lay across a bed of freshly sown seeds. Although no longer in its Christmas finery, it can still help new life to arrive in peace.
