Friday flowers: a mixed bunch + bloggy friends

Oh my goodness, it looks like I might survive my first three days back at work!
I'm so glad it's Friday!
Bit of a mixed bunch this week. Above is the very beautiful Angel Face rose. Frilly and mauve, I just adore it. Adore it, I tell you! How beautiful against the old fence.

Now I know this isn't a flower, it's Friday Foliage :)
How lush does this manfern look? SO beautiful.

This pretty rose is called Jubilee Celebration. It's a David Austin and has the most beautiful colouring. I was really taken with this bunch as they were different to the usual blooms. More delicate with soft shading and a very obvious yellow stamen centre.
And to finish off with another bunch of bloomin' flowers, here we are at dinner Wednesday night...

You might have read that myself, Kerry and Jane had a little bloggy get together. We had so much fun!
The poor restaurant staff eventually kicked us out as they had to close, but not until we had our piccies taken.
Jane and I have been 'real life' friends as well as bloggy friends for a while now and it was the first time we both had met Kerry. What a lovely lady. We chatted for hours! Yay for bloggy catch-ups! So much fun!

Well, happy Friday to you all. Have a marvellous weekend.
Hugs, Sar xx

  9. Such gorgeous blooms as always!! Love that fern - so lush and green. I think I've succesfully killed the fern in our bathroom through lack of watering :) How wonderful your bloggy catch-up must have been - so jealous!! :) I'd love to meet all three of your in person some day. Enjoy your weekend x
