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.]
