Friday Flowers

We got back last week, after a very pleasant holiday......though on the first day it didn't look like that would be the case!
Those of you who are my friends on facebook will know that we didn't get off to the best of starts. To cut a longish story short, we arrived to find a puddle of water on the kitchen floor, which was strange but was mopped up quickly and we got on with our day but arranged a visit by a plumber for the following morning.
That afternoon the kitchen was flooded with soapy water from an upstairs neighbour's washing machine......argh!!!! Plumber came out on an emergency call and sorted out the problem...a communal waste pipe blocked with a mixture of fat and washing powder....yuk.
He came again the next morning as booked and capped an unused pipe and checked other bits and pieces.
So apart from using every towel to stop the flood of water reaching the wooden floors in the rest of the flat, no real harm done and everything is covered by the insurance, though there was a moment or two when all I wanted to do was come home, especially after last time!!

But home we are, back to autumn it seems. I took these pictures a few days after we got back, since then it's been too wet and windy to photograph outside...I'm really going to miss being in the garden and I'm giving my workroom a huge tidy up so that I can use it as my studio again this winter.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
