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 Mistletoe by Helen Allen, Dip EGS, AB, CSBA Tutor and Principal.

Sing hey! Sing hey!
For Christmas Day;
Twine mistletoe and holly.
For a friendship glows
In winter snows,
And so let’s all be jolly!

Thomas Tusser, English poet, 1524-1580
