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.

Softly pretty 🙂 🙂 Happy Friday, Jude!
Just what my heart needed on this grey December morning. Thanks, Jude. I’m enjoying this series.
Thank you Pat. I’m happy to know other people are enjoying the flowers too.
Looking at all your lovely flowers is such a treat when it’s so cold here. Nothing but shades of grey outside here.
They are cheering me up at the moment as it is too windy and cold to go out much. Been sunshine and wintry showers for much of the week.
Particularly love this one so far ❤
There were several of these plants along the walk and they were all so lovely.
fairy lights 🙂
This one is gorgeous, Jude! ❤
Another pretty in pink…
