On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me... a parakeet in a plane tree!

In the post-children's stockings pre-Christmas lunch lull yesterday, the Green family and associated hangers on went for a walk in the local park, where we saw this...

... sorry... this!

A parakeet in a plane tree!

Of course, in the original Twelve Days of Christmas, on the first day of Christmas the young woman who countdowns the bizarre list of presents receives a partridge in a pear tree. Or did she?
To find out more about the possible meaning and origins of the carol The Twelve Days of Christmas just delve into your copy of What is Myrrh Anyway?
