Amazing friends

Birthdays always cause us to pause and assess where our lives are and are going. For me it’s a time to be incredibly grateful for the amazing friends (including my best friend, my hubby) that are in my life.

One friend, whose life is beyond busy with four children, a hobby farm and a family business to run, somehow found the time to drop in with a sweet bouquet of cheery flowers and a lovely card that brought tears to my eyes. She thinks I’m a good friend – I know that SHE is.

Another friend who is also busy with life, commitments, and so much more, also found the time to send flowers – this time from the talented hands of Pam Goold at Goold’s Flowers in Sussex. The vase was stuffed with colour and fragrance to simply make my day brighter.

Now I am delighted to have not one, but two lovely floral arrangements to help while we wait for spring to arrive!

Another toy!

Another good friend gave me a Lens Ball as a birthday gift so my next experiment will be to use it to capture more flower shots from a different perspective – perhaps combined with the excellent macro lens that the aforementioned hubby gave me for the occasion.

A couple of years ago another friend gave me a Peace Lily plant. Normally plants commit suicide when given to me but this one is of hardy stock and is still growing and flowering for me – making a great subject for a macro lens!

And of course, Harley has supervised everything, making my birthday celebrations, and every day, complete.
