Just want to pause for a moment and sent out my warmest holiday wishes to everyone, who is reading my blog!
And if you are celebrating Christmas, of course, Merry Christmas to you! I hope you have a wonderful time with friends and family. May there be lots of moments of peace, joy, happiness, and love, which I feel it is all about.
My husband and I we are celebrating Christmas today on Christmas Eve already as it is the tradition in Germany. It will be an intimate afternoon and evening with an English Afternoon Tea follow by a cozy dinner later at night.
As you can easily see in our home today it is all about good food and spending quality time together!
I better finish this post now, since the tea sandwiches on the photos were from yesterday and are long gone! Today we will be having a special kind of scone, which I baked already, but the sandwiches and other little palate teasers still must be prepared (my husband's specialty) and the table needs to be set up nicely (my job)!
One more thing I would like to share with you. I am most excited about my early Christmas gift: Eight 3' x 2' holes and three more areas, where sprinklers have been put in. Yay! One hole is already filled with a hydrangea, which we planted yesterday. I hope to show you photos very soon.
The rose that you can see in today's photos is 'Madame Alfred Carriere'. I potted her up into a big terracotta container lately, fertilized her, and she is blooming like in spring.
See you in the garden!
