The Christmas season of 2019 has arrived! We have been very busy at the greenhouse preparing for the season. We have new classes to offer and new products in the gift store. The Christmas trees are arriving soon, the poinsettias are turning red, soon all will be ready for that most magical holiday of the year. I love Christmas! The sights, smells (and tastes!) that bring our memories back to Christmas' past and dream of Christmas' future.... If we at the greenhouse can be a small part of your Christmas, we will be truly privileged.
Some of the gifts that I am excited about this year, is the lovely Alpaca accessories. Alpaca is warmer than wool because its fibres are hollow and provide better insulation. Alpaca fibre is anti-microbial, super soft and hypoallergenic. Made by Pokoloko, the pieces are made in Peru by artisans who are fairly paid for their work.
And Morden's chocolates are in stock. So good! (and award winning as well) I am holding myself back opening a box until closer to Christmas as I know what will happen....
Or try the Stonewall Kitchen's Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Sauce, the Lambertz Butter Florentines or for a whimsical stocking stuffer "Canadian Moose Droppings"
"In a Clarkleigh Garden" soaps and perfumes are new this year. A gentle soap, gift boxed and ready for gift giving. Decorated with soap characters, they are whimsically delightful. "In a Clarkleigh Garden" has created a line of field tested Shaving Soap, Aftershave and shaving accessories, a perfect gift for the man in your life.
Our Open House is coming up on Sunday, November 24 in the afternoon and evening. Stop by for a coffee or tea and some dainties. Hope to see you there. Or drop in any time, the coffee pot is always on.
