A Christmas Bush

 We decided not to have a Christmas tree this year.
Mr Lottie isn't back to full strength, and I have hurt my back.

Totally on impulse I decided to get a little bush instead.

 I need to have another go at trimming the top - but it looks very pretty with the sun shining on it.
 I crammed on lots of little surprises, even cinanamon sticks 
(you can just see one of a bunch poking out at top - the smell is yummy)
Even if your home is tiny like ours you can still have a festive  'tree'
I sprayed bits of holly gold and some twigs, as I mentioned - lovely cinnamon sticks
very Christmassey, strings of beads, pears, artificial poinsettias and ribbon etc - everything from my 
flower arranging stash box - long ago hidden under a pile of other boxes under the table in my studio.
I wrapped the plant pot up in a big carrier bag and plonked it into a big green plastic plant pot, and wrapped it in potato sacking and added a ribbon.

Not quite big enough for a fairy - but it smells heavenly and fits in our little room perfectly.
And after the Christmas holidays it will be planted in a gap along my fence in the front garden
that has been crying out for a shrub for over a year now - but I have not had to time to buy one!
Until now!

Happy Christmas everyone.
