From my garden

A few days ago a box, about 4″x9″x12″, arrived on my doorstep.

Opening it up I found a handmade Christmas card, three packets of Sweet Pea seeds, a container with various scrumptious looking home-baked cookies and a rather special personalised calendar.

The cookies certainly proved to be every bit as delicious as they looked, and I even managed not to eat them all at once!

The calendar is titled From my garden and is full of wonderful looking flowers, mostly roses not surprisingly since they’re all photos taken by my lovely friend Nikki in her beautiful garden. It will take pride of place and looking at it will brighten up many a dreary day, and definitely have my nose twitching throughout next year.

Thank you Nikki for such a lovely, thoughtful gift.

[I did try to take some photos but they weren’t very good…sorry folks. Have a look at Nikki’s blog and you’ll see lots of superb photos of roses, cookies and her cat.]

  1. Hi Flighty, this doesn’t surprise me. You put me on to Nikki’s blog, everything on it is lovely, her writing, her photos, her baking and her cat. I do hope you enjoy all your gifts. I wish you a very happy year ahead on your allotment, it looks like a great place to spend time and look forward to more of your interesting posts next year, who needs photos anyway! How do you get all those little pieces of snow falling through your blog, very clever! Louise x


  2. Louise Nikki really is such a lovely person!
    I’m looking forward to reading your blog(s) in 2008.
    The snow was thanks to WordPress, but it’s only to Wednesday.
    Happy New Year! xx


  3. Awww, Flighty. Glad you enjoyed the parcel And even the cookies which may have been worse for travel… Hugs and happy new year!


  4. Nikki the contents, cookies apart, will give me pleasure throughout the coming year.
