Congratulations Gladys on your wonderful array of gifts. So much work in all the gifts. Love Chris

P.S. Are the flowers native to Ireland and what are they called?

Flowers are Inula hookeri, they are not native to Ireland but do very well in gardens. They are a clump forming perennial. I must look up where their homeland is

Looks like enough for a couple of Christmastimes! The tree with its little folds and charms is really cute. I have not seen one made like this before. You certainly were spoiled with some magnificent items. Oh, I just love the yellow flowers in the background!

I second everything you just said.

Yes, I am spoiled. The flowers are Inula hookeri, a perennial that I planted years ago. G
