Fluffy Heads

Have I said before that we have two beaches here?  One is called South Beach and the other is the North Shore. Of the two my favourite is the South Beach.

Karen and I took a walk along it the other day - mainly because she was really tired and bored.  The reason for the tiredness was that she had slept in for work the day before and was about 20 minutes late.  She was horrified that she had done this and as a result couldn't sleep the next night for fear of sleeping in again. 
 As a result she was extremely tired. So I thought a walk along the beach might do her (and me) some good.

As usual we had a good blether (chat) on our walk and enjoyed the fresh air. 
We also spotted these wild flowers.  
Now you must know by now that I have no idea the names of flowers  - so I just have to post the pictures and hope someone will come along and will know what it is called :))

Anyway have a look and see what you think.
There were lots of these fluffy heads around. The were so pretty!!!

I was wondering what the flower from it would look like - when I found one.  Isn't it really lovely?
I was wondering if it might be from the daisy family!!

On a separate note - Laura gets the keys to her new flat tomorrow. So that means we will be travelling the three hour journey on Saturday to help her move out. 
She has so much 'stuff' - I didn't think it was possible for one person to have so many possessions, lol.
 It will be strange not to have her at home and I will certainly miss her.  But how exciting is it - to start out on a new stage of your life. 
I well remember moving into our first flat and how excited we were.
Memories to hold onto that's for sure :))

She's gotta be excited. Good for her:) Love the pics from your walk. Yes oh yes....that almost happened to me once.....you don't hear the alarm and almost miss work at the job:) I can understand her fear there. She must have really needed a deep sleep....and it's rare when we get that opportunity.

Many flowers - many pretties. My grandmother loved flowers and taught me types and names and such. Things like that you just never forget.

I have no idea what that fluffy flower is but we have them here too. You are going to do just fine the first time we dropped our daughter off at university I thought I was so brave and I cried on the way home. It is much easier with the second one:) Good luck:) B

I felt the very same way, when my son moved back to school on Sunday. One suitcase was just full of jeans. and I though I was bad!!!

I love your fluffy head flowers!

You have a wonderful weekend.
