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.

Pretty tinsel 😊
I believe tinsel is a NO-NO this year. Must admit I like this much better 🙂
Phew – good to know I am on trend!
Poor old tinsel! Terrible to be unfashionable. 🙂 🙂 Only 6 to go!
Only 1 to go until my Christmas dinner 😀
You’re having Christmas dinner on Wednesday? Or 1 week 🙂 🙂
OK, be pedantic. Tomorrow 🙂
Because I am not cooking a turkey for two of us! And the farmshop have a very good restaurant attached to it with locally grown / raised food 😀
Good enough! So steak for Christmas lunch? X
I rather think so 🙂
Enjoy your early Christmas dinner 🙂
Thank you. We did. All full up now and in need of a lie down!
