Is it Christmastime yet?

anticipation gathers

 in electric frissons on the air 

excited laughter mingling with

the scents of pine needles and spices 

as children follow the white rabbit

into a magical wonderland for

a date not to be missed

White Rabbit bw 2

This week’s photos were taken at Doddington Hall, a stately home on the outskirts of Lincoln. Every year they decorate with a different theme. This year’s is Alice in Wonderland.

Generally I like to stick with black and white photos for my Monochrome Monday posts, but as a Christmas treat I thought I’d also include a shot of the White Rabbit room in colour this week.

Merry Christmas!
