I thought I'd share a beautiful Christmas gift, which I'm hoping to update you on throughout the year.
Spring is on it's way (soon I hope) and this particular lovely gift will be finding its way out into the garden and I can't wait to see it there, in it's new planter :)
When I took the packaging off this is what Katie's tiny, perfect Christmas tree looked like..
Here it is! Having washed all of the snow off and made sure the soil in the plant pot was moist, this little tree has been sitting on the window sill of the window at the bottom of our stairs. This is the spot where he'll get the most light, I would say sunshine but it's January and we're in Scotland so that's just not happening :)
The little tree is warm and in the window he'll be able to soak up as much light as he would outside but it's still too cold for him to be outside of course. I have a bag of compost with baby bio mixed through ready to re-pot him into a larger plant pot which I'll do in the next week or two and in the Spring when it gets warmer he'll be moved again into the middle of a much larger planter which will give him lots of room to grow and he'll then go outside onto the patio where he can have the rain and sunshine to help him grow.
Later in the year I'm hoping we can plant him in the garden and who knows maybe next Christmas we can decorate him outside in the garden :) I'd never cut him down though so he'll be decorated where he's growing. I'll post updates as he's moved from different pots till he's outside in the garden and hopefully next Christmas he can be the star of this blog with his pretty decorations :) Now to find solar lights....
Thank you so much Katie (and Karen) for this wonderful tiny, perfect tree. I'll have such fun all year looking after him and watching him grow and I'll share through photos :)
I was also lucky enough to receive the most adorable Christmas card. Katie's design was chosen to be the card design for her primary school Christmas cards, yaaaaay! well done Katie! I'm so proud of you sweetheart.
Over to you honeys, what's been your favourite Christmas gift this year? What's made you smile and warmed your heart? Here's to a wonderful year full of smiles, hugs and laughter and all good things :) Till next time dear ones, huggles always xx
