Christmas is coming!


By gwendas


Hi everyone,
Hope you all keeping well and avoiding the nasty viruses that are around?
Well school has finished – yippee! – so I’m on holiday. Finished early yesterday so managed to get the decorations up then and cards up this morning. All the horrid ironing done too so now having some me time on GOY and catching up wiht all your Christmassy photos. Lovely!
My little tree – lopsided but cute is up in my dining room

ny hyacinths are blooming – are yours?

as are my lovely Christmas hellebores outside

I love the wreath my florist friend Liz made me

I’ve also finally potted up the myrtle I bought for my friend Claire for Christmas – her nickname is Myrtle!

I’m also growing another hyacinth in one of those special vases – never tried them before- also that’s your card Arlene thankyou x

It’s gone very mild here this weekend but then looks like being cold with winter sun and sharp frosts – lovely for that brisk coastal walk on Boxing Day.
Best wishes to all of you and yours this Christmas.
Jo x
