A very Happy Christmas to you and yours.

Thank you, Karen, for including Sir Roy Strong's words from his lovely book A Country Life. And a very happy Christmas to you and your family and to all who read Cornflower XXX

EACH LITTLE WORLD

Trust Roy Strong to give us such apt words to describe the season. Today — Dec. 24 — is my dad's birthday. He died in 1998 but, for me and my sisters, this will always be his day.

So very true what he says. And so well expressed!

Best wishes for the holiday season.

Words of a very wise man,thanks so much for posting them. Christmas is a very bittersweet time of the year for me. so I can relate to Mr. Strong's writings.
Happy Christmas to you and your family Karen, and thanks for all your wonderful posts. They still remain at the top of my daily "must reads".

Thank you for sharing this with me, Karen. So apropos on this bittersweet day for my husband and me. I hope you don't mind if I post it on my blog, as well.
Merry Christmas.
