Happy birthday Glo

This year I’ve been spoilt for choice as what flower to give Glo (Porcelain Rose) for her birthday, so here’s a selection all taken during the last week or so.

The rose Pretty Lady has been flowering since late May and this picture was taken just a couple of days ago.

Some nasturtiums are still positively glowing.

I have to include a Flighty’s favourite pot marigold.

And the Michaelmas daisies Twinkling Stars are simply wonderful.

Happy birthday Glo, I hope that you have a lovely day! Β Flighty xx

    HAPPY BRITHDAY, GLO!!! I tried to email her, but got a bounce-back. Nice to have so many pretties to choose from for her birthday blooms. Yes, those twinkling Michaelmas daisies are show stealers for sure.

    Thanks for the gorgeous flowers for my birthday, Flighty ~ I think I’ll put them all in one big bouquet of fragrant loveliness! I had quite a few surprises today ~ the sun shone all day, which was perfect; my son who has spent the last two weeks with a boyhood friend of his on Haida Gwaii, dropped in on their way home…what a lot of adventures they had in many areas of near wilderness! My son brought me home a collection of pure white rocks, and two heart shaped rocks, one of which was red. He had found them while on the beach at north coast ~ a very special birthday gift. Here’s an URL to find out info about this fascinating area: http://www.gohaidagwaii.ca/our-islands
    Also an uncle phoned who now is the ripe old age of 90! Although I had nothing planned, my day was full!!! Thanks for being part of my special day πŸ™‚

      Glo you’re most welcome, and that sounds like a nice idea. It’s good to see that you had a lovely day with some surprises.
      I know how much you like such rocks so they must have been a wonderful present. Thanks for the link, which I’ve had a quick look at and bookmarked for a good browse later.
      It seems that one way and another you had a really wonderful birthday. xx
