Christmas Cottage Garden

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 and enjoy a cup of tea.  We are so thankful to have had rain and cool weather here in Southern California and our winter flowers are thriving.

Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, to see what is growing in the garden.



So far we have not had freezing weather at night and some of the white Impatients are still blooming.



                                                 The Poinsettias love the cooler weather.






The ferns on the front porch are protected from frost and so far are doing well.



                         I plant Paper Whites so they are spaced out to bloom through January.





I love red and white check for Christmas and Summer and it is always fun to get the pillows out for Christmas - they are indoor/outdoor and have lasted very well over the past 10 years.


                      I made some of the Christmas ornaments last year with my art group.








                                We will have out tea in this little corner of the garden.




Blossom our vintage dress form is all dressed up for the holidays - can you tell she is wearing socks for mittens and has on a mini Christmas tree skirt around her waist! She is a fashionista and shops exclusively at the Goodwill Stores!

                               Another favorite spot for morning tea is the kitchen garden.

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

Have a lovely week.  Blessings,  Erin

Your winter garden looks beautiful. The red and white looks so pretty with your red flowers and paper whites.

My garden is also thriving with this cooler weather. I love it after all the heat we had.

You certainly made some very pretty ornaments.

Have a wonderful week.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh - you got me with the lime green and white polka dot pieces. Such a perfect marriage with those beautiful poinsettias. You have such a knack for beauty.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Erin.
