Lovely, lovely photos! I do so enjoy these flower portrait pics, I'm feeling inspired and, though I can't manage a full blog at the moment, might go for one bloom a day - they are so gorgeous.Poor Joan - I'm sure she will look great eventually, but at the moment, she looks like we did sometimes as students. Whatever the young folk of today believe, we were not the lucky generation that lived in luxury paid for by the state in our student years, my grant was £13 a term, plus up to £10 that we had to prove we'd spent on books. We lived on potato or onion soup and had no money for outings or going to the pub. Our weekly treat was a mud face pack - well we were already 19 and needed to stave off the horror of looking old, like a 30 year old! So we spread the stuff over our faces and neck and spent the evening trying not to crack the cacked on muck before it had magically removed our non-existant wrinkles. You might tell Joan - the stuff doesn't work!Your friend, Mrs, Wrinkles x
Thanks Jenni ;) It's lovely that you are feeling inspired to look at whats happening in your garden.lol yes Joan does look likes she's on a cheap evening in, with her face pack maybe I should go give her a magazine to read while she tries not to crack her mask! x
