Christmas 2008 at Baytree Garden Centre
I'm not sure what this has to do with gardening. Unless Santa has rationalised his sleigh ride and the english are forced to hang their stockings in the garden to get anything (swedes are spoiled with a personal visit by Santa on Christmas Eve). Big garden centers do get a bit desperate over the winter, and I can honestly say that the big plant malls in Sweden take on a similar look in October.
Having delivered this cynical piece I'm going to lean back and indulge in something I love; wide eyed enthusiastic endorsement of christmas, Christmas, CHRISTMAS. I love this holiday, and to be honest I really wish for MORE glitter, tinsel and decorations. (Humming "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas".)
