Flower power.....!!..

Nothing cheers up a chilly day more than a beautiful bunch of flowers (oh ok! winning the lotto would be pretty fab too.... chance would be a fine thing!!). I hardly ever buy flowers in summer because they just don't last very long in the heat, but Autumn, Winter and Spring it's a different story! I usually take a trip to the local  markets where they sell REAL bunches of flowers, not the ones you get from the florists that are full of fillers and very few blooms! The purple anemone, always roses, and splash of sunshine yellow ranunculus are among my favorites. Have a 'colourful' weekend.....!!

  8. Wonderful colors and perfectly captured although it is odd to hear you talk about shaking off the chill when it was 103 F/40 C, here today.
