Happy Christmas reading!

I generally buy myself a non-fiction book for Christmas.

This year it’s The Bedside Book Of The Garden 61hcabcikvl_sl500_aa240_by Dr. D.G.Hessayon. On the back cover it says...Gardening is about planning and planting and pottering, but it is also about sitting back occasionally and just looking and imagining…

I shall enjoy sitting down to read it with the obligatory cup of tea and a couple of the Royal Edinburgh All Butter Shortbread Assortment that I’ve been given.

Happy Christmas reading!

    Sounds lovely and cosy, Flighty πŸ™‚ I had ordered some books, but they are on the slow-boat… But soon, pruning week will be upon me and I shall possibly too tired for reading! Happy Christmas to you, my friend.

    Sounds really cosy ^_^ Have fun. Merry Christmas! It’s cloudy and boring over here in the north ^_^

  4. Flighty says:

    VP I’m not surprised, it’s had really good reviews! I’ll do that.
    Thanks, and you too! xx

    Nikki it’s like a nice old style hardback with drawings rather than photos.
    Many thanks, and to you too! xx

    Sinta I like cosy, especially at this time of year.
    It’s been dull here for a few days, but looks like being sunny but cold at the weekend.
    Have an enjoyable, and relaxing, time! xx

    I treated myself too, Flighty – ‘Psychotherapy and the quest for happiness’ by Emmy van Deurzen. (Takes all sorts!) Happy Christmas. πŸ™‚

    What a great book! I checked the link and there are some preview pages to look at which gave me an idea what it is like. It looks so interesting and I bet you’ll thoroughly enjoy reading it. It’s so nice to be able to read something of interest and just enjoy the read, without having to do anything else about it! ~ except of course for the tea and biscuits πŸ™‚

    Cosy and quiet sounds good!

  9. Flighty says:

    Jenny good for you! Thanks, and you too! xx

  10. Flighty says:

    Glo it certainly looks it! I hope that it’s as good as it looks.
    I think the expression is ‘just the ticket’! xx

  12. Flighty says:

    Many thanks, and to you too! xx

    Shortbread, a good book, a few good telly programmes and no snow! Sounds like a perfect Christmas! Merry Christmas Flighty, love n hugs xx :o)

  14. Liv says:

    Mmm, how lovely and cozy, a book with tea and shortbread πŸ™‚
    I mean, not that you’d *eat* the book of course, though you can either devour it or savour it as food for the brain!

    Merry Christmas, Mr Flighty! xx

  15. Flighty says:

    Daffy don’t forget the cup of tea! That’ll do for me.
    Many thanks, and to you too! Love and hugs! xx

  16. Flighty says:

    Liv that’s how I like it, with food for thought and my tummy!
    Thanks, and to you too! xx

    Happy Holidays Flighty from all of us here in Ohio.

  18. Flighty says:

    Deyank many thanks, and to you too, from me in London!

  19. Flighty, tea and shortbread and a good book. Sounds very snug. At first I read your comment as “planning, and planting, and poverty.” Maybe that’s because I was thinking about the purchases we will make for our yard clean up next week. Hope you enjoy yourself. The “imagining” and “planning” of gardening is a most enjoyable aspect πŸ™‚

  20. Flighty says:

    Beginninghere it’s cold here so being cosy and snug is a very good idea!
    It sounds like you’ve a busy week planned.
    At this time of year it’s our busiest aspect of gardening, as well as the most enjoyable! xx
