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.

if only my Christmas Tree lights looked as gorgeous as these
They do rather look like twinkling lights 🙂
Those stamens were a giveaway, even before I read the tags. I love our native nightshades, and I love white flowers. I might try to grow these, just for the double pleasure of it all.
This did look very attractive scrambling over the fence and shrubs.
Star of Bethlehem or just a relative? Would be highly appropriate. 🙂 🙂
Star of Bethlehem flowers are summer bulbs I believe, this is the potato vine, but yes I can see the resemblance. As Becky said, they’d make pretty tree lights.
It’s a dainty little flower.
Love the diagonal composition and the bokeh background. You’ve caught the creasing of the flowers beautifully.
