Meeting up for Coffee....

As my friend wasn't feeling too good of late she rang to tell me she couldn't make it for our Lunch out. But to pop over for a coffee and a chat very soon. This is the Lady that is 94 years old . I met her 12 years ago working in a charity shop. We hit it off very quickly..and soon found out we had a lot in common. 
So we had coffee and homemade drizzle cake , we laughed and had a hearty chat.  She said as much as I love my family , she has two daughter's. It's so good to chat to to someone other than family, at times. 

August has been a wash out dull and wet day's , so just before the gloomy forecast I took a picture of my Red Hot Pokers. As you can see they are doing really great this year. 

Back in June I found a box of flower seeds , mostly out of date. 
I picked out the Marigolds , and scattered them over my front patch just under the Window., Just literally threw them  there and walked off. Well here are  the results ..

Never give up :) 

Off to catch up on your posts now , have a great week. 


  1. Sure was a pleasant surprise...The top flower is pretty, makes me want to feel it.

  2. Oh my! I was a bit surprised when I read "picture of my red hot pokers" until I scrolled down a bit and saw the plants. Phew! That was close!

  3. These beautiful photos of green are making me breathe more deeply just by looking at them. I didn't know those flowers were called Red Hot Pokers.

  4. She sounds like a very sweet lady. I've never heard of the top flower, but it is pretty. How lucky that you got your flowers to grow...if I threw seed out, it would just blow away to the ditch somewhere. That's my luck!

  5. blessings....

    Its good to keep in touch with loved one.

    have a fabulous week.
