Pleasant Evening

I just love pretty flowers, and I think this one is very pretty. As usual I don't know what it is, I just saw it, loved it and took a picture lol.


Last night we all went out for dinner. We went to a local Frankie and Benny's, and had a very pleasant meal. 
Emma plays violin and had a lesson straight after dinner. So the three girls went off to that in the car and Danny and I sat and relaxed over a dessert for a while longer.  Then we came home - with no cooking or dishes to do, what bliss, aahhhh.
What a pleasant way to spend an evening.  We must do this again real soon.

Yes, that is a very pretty flower. And your evening out sounds perfect and relaxing.
I once had the privilege of visiting Scotland - the Oban area. I hope I get to go back in the future.

What a great flower! I don't know its name either and this is also typical for me ;-)

Glad that you had a good night Ellie,
it is wonderful not to have to cook and to escape the dreaded dishes!!

Love the flower, it is a lovely shade of blue.

Enjoy your evening.

I like the photo of the flower, very pretty. It is nice to go out to eat and not have the clean up when you are done eating!

Another lovely picture from you, Ellie. Thank you.

And what a nice way to spend the evening.

(I'm with you - I love it when there is no clean up after wards. :)

Flora said...

Thank you for your visit to my site! I also think the flower in your photo is very pretty.
My son works for F&B down in the South-West area of the UK! I am glad to hear the meal was good :)

Must be delightful to eat out. Love your flower, such a pretty colour.

Janie said...

Purple is the color, and boy I love this one. So glad you stopped to photograph it. What is it about dishes, and cooking that leads us all to a point of "Bliss" when we are not having that responsibility? I am fortunate that my husband doesn't mind doing the dishes, and he likes leftovers.

geetlee said...

I feel you, no cooking and dishes after is bliss. That's a lovely lovely shot!

Rose said...

I read every comment trying to see if anyone knows what this is...it is a real beauty.

Love eating out simply because of the no mess afterwards.

Kayla said...

I never know the names of the flowers I like either! What a nice, relaxing evening!
