Christmas Traditions / Garden Gifts


Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to  come in and sit and relax for a few minutes with a cup of tea and a piece of  gingerbread.  An old Irish family tradition in our family is to make gingerbread on the day after Thanksgiving and serve it with tea as our way of kicking off the up coming Christmas season.

Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden to share with you a few things we are growing for gifts.



We usually start in the garden where various plants and Poinsettias are planted to add holiday color and are also used for gift giving to gardener friends and we grow herbs to give to our friends who like to cook.
Ivy makes a wonderful gift - the addition of a red bow to a hand painted watering can makes an adorable festive gift with a few vintage garden tools.





Paper Whites are a favorite among gardeners.


  






  



Herbs are a welcome gift to friends who love to cook.

Ivy and Poinsettias in  decorative containers are always fun gifts.





Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those following my blog.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin
