Birthday and Blossoms

Today was a friend's birthday, so I bought her some roses ~ She has just phoned me to say that they are exquisite in the natural light at home. She is having family and guests over for her grandson's Christening on Sunday, so she says the roses have added a special touch!

Also today, I noticed a few cherry blossoms opening up, however they are too high to take a close-up. Here's how the buds look at eye level ~ it won't be long :)

I have enjoyed reading Daffy's recent snoring post, and have learned quite a bit about wood pigeons in the process ;)

  1. I love Daffy's word pictures, too! The roses you purchased look ethereal in that light. What a thoughtful gift early in your springtime :-)

  6. I tried to edit the previous comment I made, because I had a typo in there that was an odd one, but I ended up removing the whole comment because I didn't see how to edit it...

    Nikki~ Ethereal is a lovely way to describe the roses, as they did have that quality about them. Thank you :) My friend was thrilled with them which pleased me. She has a way with flowers, and can transform any bouquet to an exquisite arrangement. I can imagine her sitting in your rose garden surrounded by those beautiful flowers and thinking she was in paradise :)

    Flighty ~ Yes, thanks...they are lovely. Daffy is a natural, which is so appealing :) with a delightful sense of humour.

    Daffy ~ Blushing suits you ~ shows you're in the pink! I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your cherry tree. It sounds like yours and mine are at a similar stage, so it will be fun to compare their blossoms/fruit :)

  7. What lovely blossom. Would it have been damaged by the snow? x

  8. Hi Louise ~ I hope the blossom hasn't suffered, although I know a few blossom trees had branches broken where they had more/heavier snow. Some places had 8-12" fall overnight! I will take a photo of the blossom again soon, because I must admit when my cherry tree comes into blossom, I'm just amazed at its beauty!
