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 Douglas Fir by Pearl Bostock, Dip EGS, AB.

It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold!


Peace on the earth, good will to men,
From heaven’s all gracious King!
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.

“It Came Upon the Midnight Clear”, Edmund Sears, 1849
