Christmas Trees & Snowflakes are images that I associate with winter - probably something to do with my first 6 Christmases which were spent in Sweden; those that I remember involved skiing through the pine forests on my own small skiis. I don't remember skiing after we moved to the UK in 1967 although both my brother & Father liked nothing more than to set off for Austria to ski during the Easter Holidays.

I have uploaded all the photos again as the first set were not clickable for enlarging.
