The first candle in Advent is lit for hope and, I'm pleased to say, we have much to be hopeful about following recent vaccine developments. Flowers, too, can bring hope and even in December, we can find pretty British flowers to brighten our days. These special allouise chrysanthemums are a lovely late variety from Cornwall and the Smith and Munson lilies are full of fragrance.
What's in the posy?
