Alternative Advent #22

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 DecemberΒ so now on Christmas Eve this is the final offering. I think it is rather a pretty alternative to a Christmas tree.

  1. Did you get my sunshine this morning? It’s grey and damp here. 😦 All done and I was going to have a little walk out, but p’raps not πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • I had fun doing the series Anabel. I was just so happy to find so much in flower on my walk. And they have been a joy to me too as I fail to remember which plant I selected for each day. I did remember this one though because it is my absolute favourite.
