It was such a lovely afternoon
Hubby and I took a stroll around the Santa Fe Springs Heritage Park
Not many Christmas decorations...just a wonky Santa
and all the lamp posts had wreaths...I love this style
There was a pretty Fairy Garden..
with a rather beautiful tree..
and a little friend...who for a moment I thought was real.
A replica of an Native American hut..
and a very unusual working windmill.
Gorgeous little waterfalls...
And finally...a replica train depot...complete with train tracks..
and a full size Steam engine
And the whole time..Christmas music was being played over the loud speakers
and people were just walking around joining in.
A lovely way to spend the afternoon
One of the traditional carols I tried to sing along to this afternoon
is one, for some reason, I never succeed in finishing.
Its so beautiful that when I try to sing the chorus
I get too emotional and well up...
It builds and builds and by the end
I am reduced to floods of tears
This is a beautifully sung version by Helmut Lotti
