Beautiful Rosebuds.



























Totally exhausted after a stint in the city, shopping for clothes. Corporate clothes for my new full-time employment contract that I have accepted! I will be doing something that I really love, and working with some really lovely people. How lucky am I?

Anyway, when I came home I went straight into the garden and noticed the gorgeous pink rose buds on my white rose bush. My white roses are turning pink! Picking  the few jonquils that are left I also noticed another surprise in the garden. Very deep purple flowers. They are ever so tiny and look like native orchids, so cute and lovely to see them as I have no idea where they came from.

Grabbed some vintage china and took these images. It's the little things that make me smile. How about you?

Congrats on your new job Pam, that's very exciting!
Your flowers (and pics) are just stunning. What a pretty rose! I wouldn't have picked it for a white one :)
I have always called that last flower Happy Wanderer. Not sure what the proper name is.
Have a lovely weekend!
