Some Flowers

I fancied having some lovely flowers in the house, so I went to our local supermarket and bought some.
Some freesias and some stocks.  
I can't even begin to tell you how lovely the smell from them is.  And the best thing is they only cost me £6.00 - not bad eh!!!!

Now, if you now me by now you will know that this means only one thing - I just have to get my camera out :))
  I really like taking pictures of flowers  - I'm not sure why maybe it's because they are so pretty.

Anyway here are my offerings.

Not the best pictures ever but the flowers sure look nice. 

I thought I'd share them with  
at

Today has been another wet day - it's pouring with rain - again!!!! That is all that we are getting - every day. 
I'm really sorry to moan about it when lots of you are struggling with droughts and very high temperatures and I'll try not moan anymore :)
I went to take my bike to the repair man in town and he was shut - aargh. 
 He is only open 3 days a week - I will just have to go again tomorrow. 

I was watching the news this morning and I saw that London has lovely blue skies and quite warm temperatures - that is definitely good news for the people visiting the olympics. Hope it holds out for them.

Anyway, that's enough rambling from me for one day. :))

Flowers offer such a double-whamy of delight, a feast for the eyes and the nose. Those colors make me think of a wedding. Beautiful photos!
Hot and humid here in the Louisiana bayou.

Those flower are so nice. That is very kind of you to be hoping for good weather during the Olympic...we hosted Winter, 2002 and every one seemed to feel they were somehow letting the visitors down, or disappointing them...for weather. Hahhahha..Best to you and the weather for Olympics.

I am showing how out of touch I am with Uk prices as £6 sounds a lot of money for a bunch of flowers, however they are beautiful.

Rose said...

I wish I had some of your rain...but would be complaining if we had it every day.

Your flowers are lovely...

I have heard of freesias but never seen any before. Lovely bouquet.

Our local newspaper today stated that there has not been any rain in our town for thirty days now. The article also said the people in the know at the weather service predict that we will not see any rain until the end of summer. The mayor has also issued our first ever "conserve water alert" in the history 150 year history of this town.

I wish you could send some of your rain this way.
