Through The Christmas Key Hole of a Very English Christmas

We really hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Jason and I are feeling quite smug, we don’t know how but we have managed to see all of our families, we have an eclectic selection of brothers and sisters, halves, steps and fulls between us, not to mention the very best collection of nephews and nieces around.
I even managed to put a beautiful wreath of Hellebores, evergreens and Orchids on my Dad’s grave, which I know he would have adored.
Christmas for me is definitely about reconnecting with the ones I love very much and I’m sure it’s the same for most of you.
Flowers and foliages as you will see from the following pictures are a very big part of the celebrations in my own family and in my minds eye every image I conjure from memory seems to be framed by some lovely petals or branches, a hint of candle light or a glorious bloom.
So I thought I should share some of this flower magic with you, some of these photos are from my family Christmas and others are of snaps Jason took on Christmas Eve when he delivered to some of our most special customers and we thank you for letting us show them. Some of the very best of these pictures were taken by the extremely talented Emily Oldroyd of her own Christmas Day.
