Special delivery of flowers

Hello dear friends.

Today, it is a dull, drizzly day here so I thought it a good idea to be able to share some colour and cheer around.  I looked back through some of my old photos and this pretty bunch of freesias will be just the thing.

When you see flowers, your day is brightened.
It's like sunshine

 The weather has not been at all like Spring and in fact I had to wear my overcoat when I went over to the City on Friday. Normally we would be getting around in a summer blouse or dress.

One good thing though,  this sort of weather is good to get some chores done around the home and I am hoping with more free time in the weekend, this will happen.
Will show you what I am working on soon - I am knitting a blanket with huge needles and in a soft cream wool.
Many thanks for the visits to my blog and reading, I am grateful for your kind friendship

Have a lovely weekend


  1. You have show us such a sweet bouquet. I imagine that the blanket you are knitting must be lovely. Enjoy your weekend, Carolyn.

  2. hi dear friend !! que bonito.. esepro que tenga un bendecido fin de semana junto a sus seres queridos

    We've had a mostly unseasonably mild and dry autumn, but now it really feels like autumn with plenty of wind and rain

  4. Your lovely flowers made me smile and I love the quote. I love all you share.
    It is snowing here dear one. Love hugs and smiles across the miles Love you Jeanne

  5. Hello Carolyn, I remember you showing the lovely Freesias before, and saying it was one of your favorite flowers .
    So much wonderful smell and colours.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend, and some sun to come.

  6. Dearest Carolyn,
    Well, we live through dark and dreary days here as well and Monday night the first real frost. It is coming our way. Yes, there are other things we can spend our time on but still I love to do other work in the sunshine! Even for handwork it is so lovely when the sun kisses your hands...

  7. Your flowers are stunning. Lovely post. Have a great week end

  8. Here it Will be colder and colder this night it Goes freezing for the first time this year....winter is coming.....i wish it was is not my kind of from je Ria x

  9. Dear Caroline,
    Thank you for the pretty, bright flowers. We are having a rainy, dreary day so they are particularly welcome.
    It sounds like we are having almost the same weather on opposite sides of the world. We had frost back in October, since then days in the 50's F. or warmer and no frost. Odd but not unusual for here.
    Enjoy the day........*s*

  10. Those freesias are just right for a dull day. It's lovely to have flowers in the house.
    I hope you get/got all your chores done ...

    All the best Jan

  17. Carolyn, I am looking forward to seeing your knitted blanket. The color sounds so soft and pretty. We are in full Autumn here, but I hear that rain is on the way.

    It is our Thanksgiving this Thursday, and I am so thankful for my sweet blog friend Carolyn. You always come by with pleasant words, and I can feel the kindness in your heart.

    love, ~Sheri
