Icelandic nasturtiums

in Bonnie's garden

Sunday I paid a visit to my youngest daughter

She wanted me to photograph her garden

which I was happy to do

Saturday night was the ball

I was not a participant this year (maybe next year)

but they allowed viewers into the balcony to watch

it was spectacular and so much more fun than I thought it would be

 earlier in the week both of my daughters and my mum

came over for an impromptu get-together

we had the boys with us as well.

Some of us jumped off the wharf.

delicious apple-zucchini bread slathered with fresh butter

and Irish tea

for a breakfast




Flower Friday



  1. The ball looks so fun. I have been reading Austen's books (as you know) and my imagination has been caught by these events. I didn't realize such things still occurred - probably don't in CA. How fun that you could be an observer.

    And I am still intrigued by wharf jumping.

    Love the photo of your daughter's nasturtiums.

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to
    be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this
    is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought
    I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though!

    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks

  5. Love the photo of the ball! I would love to wear any one of those dresses:)

  9. I'm late visiting FFF due to family birthday happenings this past weekend. That ball looks like great fun! The impromptu family get-together sounds fun, too. And the apple zucchini bread sounds delicious!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
