Twelfth Night…

Today is Twelfth Night, the Feast of the Epiphany, the original Christmas Revels… whatever one calls it, let’s celebrate!  Cue the musicians, “On the first day of Christmas, my gardener gave to me…

Twelve grasses looping…

Eleven carnations crooning…

Ten tulips swaying…

Nine roses ringing…

Eight mums a humming….

Seven bulbs a sleeping….

Six orchids arcing,,

Five golden daffs

Four cyclamen

Three gloriosa

Two allium

And a Lily in a Lime Tree!”

The days are getting longer!
