I must admit the only time of the year when I miss my homeland of Germany is with the on set of the Holiday Season/Advent. I still decorate the house and have made wreaths for the doors and dining table, bake cookies, make wonderful soothing pies. And I do not miss the snow, ice and freezing cold and am thrilled with all the flowers in bloom.
So instead of pine boughs, www.colinaflora.com guestrooms are decorated with these wonderful flowers of the season.
These are some of the flowers currently blooming in our garden and I am so and amazed with. The 6 Camellia trees in our organic garden, next to the guest kitchen, have just started blooming.
Calla Lilys are popping up in our garden and grow abundantly along our walking paths in the Sintra Natural Park. These will bloom into March.
Birds of Paradise are so amazing and I love putting one in each guest room.
And yellow Asters grow wild.
