The aggies go so well with your lovely roses. Yesterday I really had to scroung to get a bunch together for the Prof's birthday. Out of 150 roses, I barely managed 10 to cut and they were a moth eaten bunch, chewed by the plague of earwigs because off the long dry.
So glad you are going to your daughter's. There comes a time when it is lovely not to carry the load and be a little pampered.

Ich habe gerade die letzten der Doppelladung Heidesand Keksen ausgebacken. Jezt noch den Geburtstag wegraumen und den kleinen Baum schmuecken.

Dir und den Deinigen wuensche ich ein gesegnetes Weihnachtsfest!
