Every once in a while I receive some unexpectedly good news – today was one of those days!
Something else wonderful was opening my front door and finding a delivery that included a beautiful bunch of pink roses from a dear friend!
Nothing like flowers to make a good day great!
I have been waiting to get my hands on a bunch of these beauties. Found some at a local supermarket yesterday. Lovely vibrant colour and they just look so different to the yellow I am accustomed too.

I was really touched today by the comments and responses of a fellow blogger to my posts on roses. Seldom have I received such a heartfelt and warm response to my photographs and it was clearly from someone who is equally enraptured by the beauty of roses. Since my garden is alive with them at the moment I picked a few and put them in a vase just for her! So these are for you Lady Amy ! I am sure you will enjoy visiting her lovely blog Petals Unfolding ~ The Embrace of Love~ too.

Having become accustomed to the English bluebells I was pleasantly surprised to be given a bunch of California Blue Bells to wish me good luck on my first exhibit. Thought they were very pretty.
