Back to Spring time
Arrived back home to see the pretty magnolia blooming in the garden ~ Joy!
Brixton Belle is such a gorgeous shade of bright pink and has large saucer sized flowers, with creamy inners.
It is so great to be safely home, had a wonderful time but I am always happy to be back.
We arrived in Auckland at the unearthly hour of 4 am on Sunday morning and that was a little bit of a shocker after leaving Charles De Gaulle airport from Paris, on Friday morning and having a lengthy stopover in Doha of over 8 hours. We flew Qatar Airlines and must say that we had a really good flight, lovely cabin crew and the flight was over 17 hours from Doha to NZ, watched a few movies to pass the time and ate some good food, a few glasses of champagne and happy to say I managed to get some sleep.
We caught a cab into the City and then had to wait for our first ferry which wasn't until 7am.
To fill in some time my husband went over the road for an egg and bacon muffin and coffee and tired and bleary-eyed, we watched the sun coming up for the new day.
Freesias are the perfect flower to give fragrance to the home, can't get enough of them and especially when I can pick them from the roadside, on my walks
Bluebells and violets, also love them
Hope you are having a lovely weekend dear friends and look forward to coming to visit you and see what you are up to.
Lastly my white camellia is blooming again, so good to come back and see what is in the garden
Life gives us a fresh bouquet of happy moments every day
Will share a few snapshots with you soon of the holiday
