It's December...... I can add some seasonal stuff to the site, and I'd like to have some snowflakes falling (you know, the way they do in places like London and, eerrrrr, Naples). I thought it may be fun if people post a photo they have of any white orchids whose blooms look a bit like snowflakes, and I'll use them.

Post ahead.

In contrast, I had hoped that now having passed 12th night those irritating snowflakes might have disappeared.

I wonder if our thoughts or feelings of these snowflakes falling down over the page would change if we were suffering snow storms, road closures due to snow drifts, or would we still be singing ' Let it Snow Let it Snow, Let it Snow'?
