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.

Definitely dancers today 😊
Show offs these ones!
The memorial walk keeps on giving, now what are these flowers, I can’t place them for now?
Name is in the tags.
I was surprised how many flowers I found Gilly, I was expecting half a dozen, but it was still very cheerful. Might pop down again this week and see what has changed.
This is a pretty one. I do love a splash of pink.
A very bright fuchsia pink !
Lovely vibrant pink. Do they have a sweet pea smell?
Not that I can recall. Despite the name.
Love the colour, it is so cheerful!!
Certainly caught my eye amongst all the greenery.
Now that’s neat. Ours is flowering right now also, In Sydney, since about a month ago!
