A HOUSE FULL OF FLOWERS

Rosa and I were cooking for the party on Saturday when the doorbell rang and, to my great surprise and delight, these beautiful flowers arrived from jmb in Canada!



[I am all scruffy in my cooking clothes.]

Here they are again:



On Sunday morning I was cooking when these fabulous tulips arrived from the Italy Magazine gang



along with this one for Simi, who was very waggy indeed:



I'd just started cooking again when these pretty pastel tulips were delivered from my Modican friends Marco, Giovanna, Giancarla and Laura:



By 2pm it was panic stations and I sent an SOS to Linda, who immediately came to help with the preparations, bringing these spring lovelies:



And at 6pm, when the party began, kind Lucia brought these gorgeous yellow roses:



So I now have a very cheerful sitting room and I want to sit in it all the time as it's like being in a profumeria. Thank you to all my thoughtful friends.

I think the florists of Modica had a good day too!

How lovely to be inundated with flowers and I can imagine how wonderful your room looked and smelled.

It sounds as if you were cooking up a storm and I am sorry I missed out on the taste sensations although I am sure there are photos to come.

Oh that's grand isn't it? I think nothing is as cheery as fresh flowers - they just lift the spirits. Happy Days to you.

Looking good there, kid. The flowers too.

Wow! What lovely friends!

I am sure your home will be more like a florist shop - perhaps you will have sixty dozen bouquets, as you so richly deserve, by the time your 61st birthday rolls around!! I hope you had a nice celebration with all your friends.
