People have been so generous in the past few weeks I had to buy some new vases - so I haunted Trade Me and the quirky local florist and got some lovely ones....
|Had to use my water jug to fit these beautiful flowers in from my friends - so it was where my hunting started|
|Our local florist had this tall green one which fitted the lovely flowers that my work kindly sent to me|
|No vase - Just Maddie getting into everything|
|This one from Canada came with its own vase - clever and very helpful :)|
|And another new green one....waiting for the perfect bunch|
|Thhis one came in useful again this week - such beautiful lilies from Kim and Paul - must watch Maddie doesn't go near them on her travels!|
|New tall clear vase.... and beautiful birthday peach roses from Mum|
And we got other flowers... some were in boxes and baskets.
|These came from my cousin in the UK for Mum|
|From my children this weekend for my birthday|
Whatever the reason they were sent, when they arrived they made me feel a bit better after Dad passed away, or this week for my birthday, just wonderful. They have filled the house with heavenly scents and gladdened my soul. Credit to the florists and a grateful thank you to all who sent them.
I may not get any flowers again now for a long time, but will still be filling these vases with roses and Sweet Peas from the garden this summer.
