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 Fig by Curzon Tussaud, Dip EGS.

In the bleak mid-winter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter, long ago.

“In the Bleak Midwinter”, Christina Rossetti, 1872
