A Friday Flower: Here's to good friends...

Last week, I babysat for a very good friend while she went out for her 15th Wedding Anniversary... I have to say, it was no hardship on my part, as I was leaving the hubby with my two screaming toddlers while I watched her older (and much calmer) children... It was a bit like a 'bus man's holiday'...

It gave me an insight into what's ahead of me... a time when children do craft projects that don't require a 3-hour clean up, where they sit and watch 'your' TV shows, with you, and go to bed without kicking and screaming... it was bliss... I know... don't wish these years away... but I sure won't miss the 'witching hours' at the end of the night...

On her return, my dear friend presented me with this lovely bunch of stocks... ahhh, she knows me well... I love these flowers and, to me, they are quintessentially 'English'... I feel that every shot of an idyllic country cottage includes a pitcher with stocks spilling over, or some strategically placed by a farmhouse sink, waiting to be popped into an old jug... and don't even get me started on the smell... heavenly...

Anyhoo, I've sat on these pictures all week, waiting to share them with you... I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

And so, my Friday flower is dedicated to friends... old, new, and yet to meet... they really make my world a much nicer and happier place...

Speaking of friends, I'll be linking up for a Friday Flower with Melissa ... Nip over and see her, too, and you will meet one of my newfound blog friends!
Happy weekend everyone!
