Thanks


What are friends for? Well they are for many things. But my absolute favourite is when they bring me home grown flowers from their own backyard. Wrapped in some good old fashioned foil. All scrunched up at the base. You know. And for no reason at all. Here are some hibiscus a friend dropped by. I put them in an old glass jar and sat them on my vintage table. Perfect xxx

  3. Hi Simone

    I love Hibiscus - my mum & dad used to have a whole row at the front and the sides of the house.
    As a girl I used to pick them all - all different colours.

    It is such a shame they only last a day once picked.

    have a lovely day

  14. Gifts given like that are just that much more special and seem to have a lot more meaning. The hibiscus are beautiful. They are one of my favorites.

  15. Love it! Thats exactly how I give out flowers from my garden, only I wet a paper towel and scrunch it around the ends, and then add the tinfoil to keep the water from leaking out.
