I visited the Brisbane Flower Markets this week.
Look at the sea of red roses, destined for Valentine's Day.
I don't know why, but I have never been to the flower market before, despite always knowing it was there.
It was freezing cold in the refrigerated rooms!
Here are some flowers for you, my readers, on
St Valentine's Day, 2015..
I brought home some pale pink, champagne coloured roses for the dining room:
and placed some potted pink blooms on the coffee table:
On a whim, I decided to continue the theme and make a little patchwork heart pillow...
Just for fun..
We took my Dad for a drive to the mountains last week.
He has become so frail lately, but enjoyed seeing the view from the car.
Not so long ago, he would have jumped out for a better look...
However, there is no lack of enthusiasm for going out into the country -
he loves it.
I have some exciting news:
I've been to the travel agent, and we have chosen our flights for our next trip to Canada, later this year.
It will be wonderful to see the beautiful spring flowers,
and perhaps see the elusive red cardinal?
But, best of all, we will see our dear daughter, and these two little grandsons..
who are growing like weeds...
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day,
with love from the Red Cardinal
