Flower bomb

I must have flowers, always and always ...
This picture just captures the abundance and wonderful spirit of summer - and - since this last weekend held the solistice and summer has now officially started, i hope you all had a great start into this wonderful season! As luck would have it, my Birthday falls on to the summer solstice and this year we celebrated here with a family reunion and a party with friends in the evening, Grace to this, my house is now filled with flowers - and - back to the SPARKLING theme - that really makes me sparkle!
I wish you a great start - let's make the best of June! Which flower do you love best?

  1. Ahh...Happy Birthday wishes to you my dear, am glad you had a wonderful time. I do love the summer and I do love flowers...all over the place. It makes me smile. This picture is wonderful. I agree, there must always be flowers, always always!! I hope you have a gorgeous week my dear!! Xxx


    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARTINA! What a great time of year to celebrate so much! And this photo says it all. Though I am sneezing a lot due to the pollen, I wouldn't trade this lovely color and life for anything. I hope you continue to have a splendid celebration and this is one of my best summers because it is slow and very low-key.

    ENJOY MY dear and beautiful friend! Anita

  6. Oh that is such a beautiful photo, and it conveys what I FEEL about summer! Thank you dear friend for coming to visit! It's funny; as I was reading your comment and I came to the part where you mention POLLEN....I SNEEZED! YES! I am sneezing a lot these days, but that does not stop me from enjoying my garden in the morning when I water or tend to my plants. I then shower and get ready for the day to be in my porch with a great book, or go visit a friend. THIS IS A GREAT JUNE!

    Big hugs to you, dear and great friend!

You are just a kind friend to join, and also good to know you enjoyed your time with your dear friend. Summer is special and we both I believe, are making the best of it! I am writing a poem at this moment, and out on my covered porch where I can enjoy the wind, the birdsong and the sound of the fountain, all bug-free!
