My Twelve Days of Christmas

I was so impressed with Christine’s post that I’m joining my  gardening buddy on her Twelve Days of Christmas, as well as Diana of Elephant’s Eye for her annual Christmas Theme, The Twelve Days of Christmas! It is that time of year we can all reflect and look back on the highlights of the past year. It has been an eventful gardening year for me and I would never have achieved so much and had so much pleasure out of my garden if it was not for all our blogging friends! Thank you all! And most of all my special gardening buddy, Christine!! THANK YOU for all we share together!!!

On the Twelve Days of Christmas, my garden gave to me ….

1. A Dove came a visiting

2. Two Sparaxis a glowing

3. Three buckets of Lavender

4. Four Lemons a ripening

5. Five pets a swimming

6. Six Comfrey bells a ringing

7. Seven Peaches for enjoying

8. Eight Roses to delight in

9. Nine rain drops a glistening

10. Ten lavender stems a standing

11. Eleven daisy heads a smiling

12. ..and Twelve roses blushing

I want to wish all our garden bloggers a Happy Festive Season! I’m going to be spending a lot of my time in MY garden!

Happy Gardening xxxxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

That was great! Loved the chickens having a ball in the pool! It’s been fabulous dropping in to visit your lovely garden this year and I look forward to more next year. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

I don’t know how you both did this. Maybe a lot of cropping and luck?

If you just posted a different photo of the swimming chickens each day, I would visit every single day, first thing in the morning. This is probably the most wonderful thing I’ve learned about “gardening” ever (that chickens can swim). Not to take away from your other great posts and photos, but really, you can’t compete with swimming chickens. 🙂
