Yesterday morning was bright and beautiful. I think it must have rained, or maybe it was the dew but the flowers glistened and sparkled in the sun, and I had to take some photos. Try to capture the moment. Then I got a little sidetracked by the call from my son after the scan, and then I had to speak to my daughter-in-law, and that was the day gone, because I was a little busy being the bush telegraph!
Sigh. It is so great. And thank you all for your comments and for celebrating with us!
Back to my garden....
I thought that the dew looked like diamonds on the leaf.....
This beautiful rosebud - just look at the perfection -and the dew on the roses below.... they look as though they sparkle with magic dust!
And the cosmos is flowering all over the place. Lovely.
Yesterday, friends popped in and out during the day, and last night, I went out for a glass of wine and nibbles with more friends. It was so lovely to sit in the garden as the air cooled a little and catch up with them. I never did have time to eat my supper last night - people kept waltzing in, and I removed my plate from the oven at 11pm and stuck it in the fridge. It will do for supper today! I would rather have people waltzing in any day. Who cares about things like food. Mind you, I did nibble quite a bit while I was out. I do not want to think about all that cheesy goodness and dips and crisps and berries and cream. Not to mention the wonderful sparkling wine too. There are a lot of sparkles in this post today, it seems.
Yesterday was one of those special days.
Anyway, I may have been a little energetic. Maybe a little too energetic, because I am feeling the consequences today. The couch and I will be bonding again. My friend, Margaret, popped in this morning to say she is coming to work in my garden later - she is my gardening fairy, and she brought me the loveliest bunch of sweet peas from her garden. They are next to my couch and they smell of heaven.
So I am off to relax, dream, and rest a little. I need to get my stregth back for February. Did I happen to mention that I am going to be a Granny?
