a week of flowers

I shall be joining Cathy of ‘Words and Herbs’ in her aim to bring cheer to the dark days of December. Back in 2017 (can it really be five years ago?) I had an Alternative Advent Calendar on my flower blog showing the wonderful flowers that were in bloom along the George V Memorial Walk in Hayle during November. I haven’t been able to get to the garden this November so I am going to reuse those beautiful blooms which hopefully will bring some brightness into our lives.

Sweet Alyssum / Lobularia maritima

    Keep this up, Jude. A great start to my day!

    1. Heyjude says:

      You’re welcome Margaret.

  2. Cathy says:

    Perfect antidote for the winter blues. It’s trying to snow here! Thanks Jude. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    1. Heyjude says:

      Cold here today and a ground frost this morning. But nice and sunny.

  3. This looks familiar … I must have seen it on our walks in the mountains. Do they come in pink as well? A pretty little flower.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes it does.

    We could do with some cheering up in Beetley today. Freezing rain, and dark at 3:30pm.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      That doesn’t sound like fun. ๐Ÿ˜•

        Soaked on the dog-walk, despite taking an umbrella. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  5. Su says:

    Lovely – I can almost smell them!

  6. Alyssum might be tiny but they always look very pretty.

    1. Heyjude says:

      They do and I keep meaning to buy some for my containers!

  7. Ann Mackay says:

    My kind of advent calendar! It cheers me greatly to think of flowers as I look towards my own grey and chilly garden… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s not been too bad here this week, though dull here now. Rozanne is still flowering!!

      1. Ann Mackay says:

        Mine isn’t, but was until very recently. Think she’s had enough of the miserable weather!

  8. Joyce says:

    These little flowers always so smell so pretty with the sun on them. They are just darling!

    1. Heyjude says:

      They seem to flower all year round in this garden. I really need to buy some for mine.
