Advent Garden: Light of Peace and Plants

 This week we lit the candle of Peace in our Advent garden. I told Panda in a hushed voice, "The Prince is coming to bring us Peace". We also added pine clippings, red dogwood twigs, birch logs, and pinecones to celebrate the plant kingdom.With it so cold and blustery outside I was not sure at first what to do to celebrate the Plant Kingdom with Panda this week. Then....
 I thought of the Como Conservatory! Outside it might be frigid in our wintery Minnesotan way..
But inside it is lush and warm. 
 At this time of year there are many beautiful poinsettias set up for Christmas.
 I had to put this picture of Panda and his Grandpapa in. 
 And Many, Oh so many varieties of beautiful flowers.
It was a good and beautiful day.
Be well.


  1. Wow, that looks like a lovely place to visit. Love the family pics :)

  2. I love your advent garden! We have a conservatory here too! I'll have to check it out on one of our cold winter days! Wonderful pictures - thanks for sharing.

    Wishing you a lovely day.

  3. Thank you, yes it was a lovely day. I'm glad that I took these photos so that I can share with Panda one day. Be well.

  4. So sweet to see a picture of you and your little matching redhead. Have a great weekend!

  5. What a great place to spend a cold day!

  6. How wonderful to be able to escape from the cold of winter, into a warm and humid paradise. Lovely photos.

  7. Your advent garden is beautiful. I was thinking on doing something like that this winter solstice. But love the idea of starting on 1st December and adding something new itch week. Thanks for stopping by my corner of the web world.

  8. Thank you. I think this year's garden is my favorite one so far. A mishmash of an Advent wreath and Waldorf garden is working out beautifully. I'm glad you like it to. Be well.
