Christmassy


The switch-on of the Christmas lights in Saltaire will happen on Friday 3 December.  There is a bit of a celebration in the Victoria Hall from 6 pm that evening so come along and join in the fun if you live locally.  In the meantime, who needs lights when there are these glorious red berries brightening up the Victoria Road shops?

  3. The berries everywhere do seem to be particularly good this year. Perhaps they are particularly bright in order to shine through the cover of snow.

  5. Do you know what kind of tree that is? Those berries are beautiful. They remind me of my high-bush cranberry, but in a tree form. And the photo is beautiful! Can't wait to see the lights too. :-)

  6. Lovely. Is that a rowan tree? It looks so good against the sky and the buildings.

  8. I think this one is a hawthorn tree - not a rowan.
