Alternative Advent #20

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 fromΒ Sunday 3rd December until Sunday 24th December.

  1. Beautifully delicate, Jude. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ My turn for a Christmas lunch today. Out with ‘the lasses’- 8 of us so I won’t get a word in edgeways. πŸ™‚ Can’t remember what I’ve ordered to eat but it won’t be turkey.

  2. Your advent is a perfect Jude, giving us all moments of joy and peace in the mad rush. I’m off for more peace hopefully today, taking Mum to Hillier’s Arboretum. Fingers crossed everyone is shopping or at home and not in the gardens!!

    • It is a very popular one at present. I might squeeze one into my tiny plot this year. Can’t wait to visit the nurseries… πŸ™‚
