Roundway Hill: late afternoon, December

We went to get our Christmas tree this afternoon from the farm we usually buy from at Seend village. Alas and alack. They were not selling trees. No explanation on the big hand-painted sign other than "No Trees".

So we tootled back into Devizes and stopped off at the garden centre near the Black Horse pub at the top of the flight of locks. Their tree prices were outrageous so we resisted but the view from their car park is one of the best around, looking towards Roundway Hill.

We eventually got a tree from a fallenoffthebackofalorry outfit selling trees in the car park of the Bell by the Green pub. M recognised the young guy selling - she had taught him at primary school. "Oh I remember him... he was a pain in the ****..."

The tree looks OK. Only cost £15. Hope the needles stay on until Christmas Day.
