Now that Christmas is over....on to gardening.

As much as I love Christmas, once everything is taken down and put away, I get bitten by the gardening bug. The planning begins, the seed catalogues get studied and dog eared and orders put together. I love this part of gardening as much as the actual getting dirty, digging and weed pulling part.



Galeux D'eysines Pumpkin (or Peanut Pumpkin)



Sungold Tomato

These two types of seed are available from Westcoast Seeds. 
The Sungold Tomatoes are the most delicious cherry Tomatoes I have ever tasted.
I cannot wait!!

Christmas Dinner gives me so much joy. I love feeding my family.

I enjoy setting a lovely table with my beautiful old Wedgwood dishes and Gallia Crystal. It is like a comfortable old friend.

And the Christmas decorating begins...


It took ages to find this old fashioned candy my grandmother always had for us. 




My tree top angel all beautiful and ready for the tree tomorrow.

David Austin Roses are the most beautiful....in the world.

I am completely smitten with English Roses. They give us the scent and look of old French Roses with the reblooming habit of Hybrid Tea Roses. 

The most beautiful cookies I have ever seen.



My name is Erin and I am a Pinterest addict. No really. I spend at least an hour a day looking for beauty in photographs!! Last night I stumbled on a cookie maker named Teri Pringle Wood. And this is what she does....
