project 365: week 23

I seem to have inadvertently gone down an almost entirely floral theme this week. It has made me think that I might quite like to do some "themed" weeks in future, but we will see if I manage it!


365 breakfast tea


151. Breakfast with a good friend was a lovely way to spend Sunday morning. We have a few places we choose to meet, that are about halfway between us, and this one opens early, does incredible french toast, and free refills. Perfect for long-awaited catch ups.


 365 rose


152. And so the flowers begin. I got two bunches of peach toned roses at the supermarket over the weekend, and they sat on the dressing table greeting me each morning this week.


365 pink green flower


153. A wander around the garden after the rains had been, yet again. I have completely forgotten what this shrub was called, something on the label referred to popcorn, presumably from the way the tightly closed flower heads burst open. So as beautiful as it is, it has now become known as the popcorn plant to me. Any horticulturists reading who can put me right?


365 magenta rose


154. This poor little rose has been languishing in the kitchen. It was a potted plant I got sent as a gift last year, and I was thrilled when it started to flower again, but after weeks of waiting for this to burst into life, I decided it was time for some pruning.


365 monochrome cushion floral


155. A last minute shot, cushions on the floor as I headed to bed. The shot is in black and white, but the colours are deep charcoal greys anyway so I'm not sure it looks that different! My black and white contribution over at The Monochrome Muse this week wasn't floral, so at least that's something!


365 tulip petal fallen


156. The tulips in the kitchen were finally past their best, and had dropped their petals when I got home from work on Friday. I loved the shape and shade of this one, so took a quick picture before gathering them up.


365 pink rose morning


157. The final flower, this beautiful tissue-papery rose in full bloom in the garden. I had a wander round in the early morning sunshine, and took a few pictures out there, finally enjoying the chance to be outside without an umbrella.
