Birthday flowers!

It’s rather pleasing to see that the Nerine bowdenii have flowered for my birthday.

My thanks to Nikki for her lovely birthday post *waves to flighty*,  and the delightful card which I received a couple of days ago.

Have a good weekend, which here looks like being sunny on Saturday but with the wind making it feel just a few degrees above zero!

  4. Well……a Very Happy Birthday to youuuuuuuu,Mike/Flighty 🙂
    I am so glad your Nerines decided to flower for you on your Special Day…!
    P.C…yes, in preparation for the forcasted coming frosts, I have taken all my green and orange tomatoes out of the ground. Seems like I have a long evening ahead of me making some green tomato chutney, depending on my dry store ingredients……aaw well shopping tomorrow..LOL!

    A belated Happy Birthday from me. How lovely to have those Nerines flowering just in time. They are such a lovely colour a real splash of vibrancy before everything fades for winter. Some sunshine will be welcome after a miserably dull week but the cold winds less so. Have a great weekend. WW xx

  12. Flighty says:

    Welly thanks. They sure are.
    I agree about the sunshine, but shame about the cold winds. Thanks. xx

  13. Hi Flighty, came to your site via Menhir, I hope you had a good birthday. I never knew that your Birthday was so close to that of my sister (Isadora) hers was the 25th.

    • Flighty says:

      Marika hello and thanks for stopping by. I did thanks, and I’m being treated to lunch today. I was thinking of Isadora recently when I dug up the gladioli, which is a flower I know she liked, to replant all together next spring. Take care. xx

    The Nerines are a pretty color. They sort of remind me of naked ladies, or belladonna lilies that pop up in unexpected, yet welcome spots in the garden.
