We’re delighted to share our own Advent countdown with you this month, featuring seasonal botanical images painted by the talented members of EGS and CSBA aulmni group, Amicus Botanicus, and CSBA tutors. A new image will be posted each day as we enjoy the anticipation and preparations for a joyful Christmas.

Today we feature Pomegranate by Carolyn Jenkins, Dip EGS.

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. It is no season in which to wander the world as if one were the wind blowing aimlessly along the streets without a place to rest, without food, and without time meaning anything to one, just as time means nothing to the wind.
Edith Sitwell, 1887-1964.
