Today's Flowers: A tiny flower from my pot




I have this plant for two years and it was the first time it blossomed.
The flowers were so tiny that I didn't notice that from the start.
But when I saw them I couldn't resist and I took a picture.
It seems to me that the plant thanked me for the two years care!

Flowers thank you for the care you give them but they often also flower out of season when you feel down, just to give you a lift.
Beautiful little flower.

Lovely.... it was worth the wait. Our avocado tree finally bloomed and gave fruit after 12 years! Now we're just waiting for the avocados to ripen.

Hallo Marina, Advent is the period of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus on 24 December.
We celebrate Advent with an Advent wreath with four candles, the first was lit yesterday, the first of four Sundays in Advent. We also have Christmas calenders for our children with 24 "windows". You open the first window on December 1, and behind the window you find a picture, or also chocolate, and the last on December 24, Christmas. Then we bake Christmas cookies. Do Greek Orthodox Christs celebrate Advent too?

Marina, when I was a child my family celebrated Advent as a quiet time with attending mass at least once a week in addition to the Sunday masses, and I think on 24 December we did not eat anything throughout the day.
During the past 5 decades or so, these old religious customs have nearly vanished and only a few people think about fasting or going to mass every Sunday. The generation of my parents still does it. I think things are still different in Greece?

What a lovely thank you for all your tender care!
