In the period leading to Christmas some people buy an Advent Calendar to check off each day before December 25. Usually intended for children, it appears that in recent years there has been a rise in the popularity of luxury ones aimed at indulgent adults who feel the necessity to treat themselves on the run-up to the big day itself – from expensive candles and perfume to miniature bottles of Prosecco or Whisky and even chunks of cheese.
So I thought to balance all this extravaganza I would offer you an alternative in the form of a flower a day from Sunday 3rd December until Sunday 24th December.

No names Jude? Keeping me guessing…
To be honest PP I am not sure: it looks a lot like a calendula (marigold) in shape of leaf and flower bud, but the colour? My best guess is some kind of daisy!!
I loved that colour combo, so unusual
I like the somewhat unusual framing, with the flowers touching each side. I found my eye drawn not only to the flowers, but also to the space between.
My favorite color combination. Beautiful shot.
What a pretty flower, with the petals tipped by that lovely shade of pink.
A shame I don’t know what it is.
