We are starting to plan the garden and popped to B & Q yesterday for six small slabs to site the storage box on behind the garage so that it will be out of sight of the living room. At the entrance there were loads of the usual big Poinsettia plants on sale for Christmas at just £4 each. With my Eagle eye I spotted some with red stickers...half price at only £2 .....so we snapped up two of them ; one for us and one for DD. I can never keep houseplants going but will give it my best shot....
Now we are debating which other tree to buy. We know we would like another but can't decide between a Rowan or an Acer with big red leaves like Autumn King. I'm swaying towards Rowan because of the berries for the birds. The Rowan at the last house only had around a dozen berries when we left though. What would you go for?
The neighbours here have begun to decorate the outside of their homes with spectacular Christmas lights. The street is already looking fantastic. I've ordered a door wreath for collection in a week or so but really hope it will be ready early. Fingers crossed 🤞 On December 1st I will allow myself to get excited 😊 Are you preparing decorations yet?
Stay safe everyone wherever in the world you happen to be x
