Friday Flowers

The first roses from my garden in a 1935 royal souvenir vase, set against a vintage union jack flag.
In celebration of a very special wedding taking place today.
Congratulations Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Now I'm going with millions of others to watch all the pomp, pageantry and romance of their very public day unfold before me.
Made even more exciting by the fact that my aunt Margaret is attending the wedding and is Kate Middleton's great aunt, goodness I'm nearly related to royalty!!

I hope you all enjoy the wedding and have a very happy weekend

Friday Flowers

Forget-me-nots are now in a blue haze over most of my flower beds. Every year as soon as they have finished flowering I pull them up and think that next year there won't be any. And every year here they are!
It is a wonder of nature that if you have forget-me-nots in your garden, you are blessed with them ever after.

I thought a little vintage metal treasure chest was a fitting container for these precious flowers.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend.

Blue and White, the perfect combination, whether it is china or flowers.

An enormous bunch of pure white tulips and blue blue iris, a beautiful birthday treat.......thank you Liz!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

A single enchanting Pansy, I thought its sweet velvet face deserved a velvet jewellery box all of its own.

And then the books on the bookshelf magically reflected its amazing colours.

How wonderful is Mother Nature to produce such detail?

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Parrot tulips - my favourite type of tulip, each petal like a feather. Pink, peach apricot and cream with flashes of green - absolutely beautiful.

They all went flop when I put them in the vase, I think they may have been out of water too long, and their beautiful heads were too heavy for their stems. Not that it matters I love them anyway!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
