Christmas wishes

Be it a wonderful bouquet of flowers from a dear friend or a family meal I would like to wish you all special moments this holiday season. I gave some bouquets of flowers as gifts this year so it was especially nice to receive one myself this evening. I’d like to share it with all friends and visitors to my blog.


My kitchen is filled with the wonderful smell of soup cooking at the moment. Sorry... no smelly vision here! So many kitchens and houses throughout the world will have their own aromas. Enjoy yours and have a wonderful Christmas.

Flowers above in vase at my front door to keep them cool.

Thanks For 2 Day said...

Hi Shirl, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day! Red rpses are such a nice gift to receive:)

How generous of you to share your lovely flowers with others for Christmas. I wish I was a neighbor or friend so I could get one too:) There are no blooms in my garden at this time of year...except birds;)

Happy holidays! Jan

ShySongbird – Thank-you and indeed not - a very Happy Christmas to you and yours too! Thank-you, I look forward to your company too :-D

keewee – Thank-you, it was almost – I have been unwell :-( Therefore the sentiment of a good and healthy 2009 to you is such a true one! All the best and thanks for stopping by :-D

Paul – Well... I am so pleased you did stumble by otherwise I might never have found your blog! What wonderful images of birds you have. Looking forward to your posting for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. Links to businesses I do delete completely but not blogs as a rule. I see you have just recently added yourselves as followers too – this is an interesting feature in blogging. Thank-you for stopping by and all the best to you all for 2009 :-D
