Hearts and flowers

Good morning everyone - hope you are well and that you are looking forward to the weekend.  I have had a very hectic 6 weeks since Christmas at work.  I have fallen behind in so many things, including blogging.  But there have been very nice things happening as well, including my birthday, wedding anniversary and some little local walks out and about.  And now it is the start of the Half Term Break :)

As today is Valentines Day I thought I would share a few "Hearts and Flowers" themed photos.  My DH bought me two lovely bunches of flowers for our anniversary which are still looking great, and the scent of them is quite intoxicating (there was also a yummy box of chocolates but they disappeared quite quickly...)

A fabulous mixed bunch of lilies and roses in deep pink shades...

Then a bunch of lilies in a most unusual shade of purple, here in the photos they look blue, but trust me they are deep purple...

Here are our cards on the mantelpiece, together with a little pot of daffodils I picked up in the supermarket for £1 (bargain!!)...

We don't really celebrate Valentines Day as such as our Wedding Anniversary is so close to it, but I hope you have a lovely day, whether you celebrate or not.

To close, there must be a loving feeling in the air as even the cats (who don't get on that well) are sharing some of my crocheted cushions...

Happy Valentines Day!



  1. Happy Anniversary. Lovely flowers

  2. Belated greetings for your birthday and anniversary. Beautiful flowers. I know what you mean about falling behind with blogging - it doesn't take much to get in the way and struggling to get back again. Enjoy your weekend. P x

  3. It's nice when the cats get on isn't it, ours very rarely sleep together, they prefer to box us in on the bed, lol
    Did you know that Lillies can kill cats so easily, any part of the flower if eaten can kill. Just thought I'd mention it.
    I love the last picture of the heart.

  4. Happy Valentine's Day to you sweet Helen.
