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.

Oooh I love these little cuties. 💛
Pretty aren’t they?
Happy daisy day! Off out to lunch soon. Turkish for a change xxx
You do get around!
It’s Christmas! XX
So people keep saying…
Fabulous! I asked for Turkish coffee and it came with a tiny square of baklava. Delicious! It was my Christmas meal with my friend from Polish classes. She could just fit me in between Christmas market in Copenhagen and Christmas itself in Budapest. And you think I live the good life! 🙂 🙂
Do you still do Polish classes? I could fancy a Christmas market in Copenhagen if I could just wish myself there. The thought of any long journey fills me with dread.
No, the local classes stopped but the friendship went on. She traveled from here to Dover, and on the return leg the ferry was delayed 6 hours by the high winds. 😦 But the photos look great.
She took a ferry from where to where?
Good question. It was a coach/ferry trip. I think the return leg was through Germany to Lubeck and Munster, sailing from Hamburg, but don’t quote me. 🙂
Sounds like a loooong journey! Coach and ferry wouldn’t suit me.
I’d far rather fly and have more time there but she’s a Christmas market addict so the more the merrier. 🙂
“Feverfew” intrigued me. It intrigued me even more to see that the plant’s been used to mitigate migraines. I wonder if it’s still part of prescriptions, or if it’s an old, home remedy. In any case, it’s certainly pretty.
Very pretty Jude 🙂
Lovely old fashioned plant. I love the daisy family
They are all such a delight and give so much pleasure.
More sunshine, hooray!
Happy faces 😀
Always make me smile.
