Blooming Wonderful!

The sunny weather is making the flowers grow... at last!

A quick photo call to prove it; please excuse the rushed pegging and lack of pressing...





So My Precious Retro Flowers are go, and I am loving them.

The sun has bleached out the photos a little, but I am not complaining, so the acorn block is blending with the background more than it does in real life.  4 down, 12 to go.
 
We spent the best part of today though at the Duck Race...




If they didn't swim fast enough - they got beaten with a stick!
We didn't win, but we had a BBQ lunch, played games and enjoyed the sunshine.

Hope you have had a good weekend too, and a Happy Mother's Day to all of you in the 'odd' countries celebrating today ;)

Please make sure you stop by tomorrow... there may be something in it for you!

  21. Love your Retro flowers, I never took the plunge with mine since I changed my mind on using my Good Folks. I'm still not sure what I would use. The duck race looks like so much fun, and I love how green and lush the scenery is.
