Flower for the weekend

A lovely Brazilian friend stopped by recently for a coffee.  We hadn't seen each other in quite some time and it was good to catch up again.  The sun was shining and we wandered out to a new nearby wine shop called "Vinius' where my friend, being a wine expert, had a field day.  I tend to buy wine to enjoy that day - she will be keeping hers for about 6 years!  This shop Vinius makes its deliveries in a VW camper van painted black and white with its name on the side.  It looks so cool - must get a photo next time I'm there.  I'd love it to turn up at my house with a few bottles of Prosecco one day.  We then sat outside a little hotel nearby and had lunch.  What a difference the sun makes.

Anyhow, my lovely friend's mother had brought over from Brazil a gorgeous little bikini for Ruby, but it had gone missing amongst all the boxes in her recent move.  So, to make up for the missing bikini, she brought me a dozen creamy roses.  How nice is that?  Huzz took this picture.  Beautiful eh.


  1. So beautiful! Very sorry about the bikini - but score for Mum! I love the sound of Vinius. Sounds incredibly civilised.

  2. The cream color of the rose makes it look good enough to eat...though I wouldn't of course! ;^)

    Happy weekend!

  3. Your friend sounds lovely, Victoria.
    Gorgeous roses, too.

  4. Cream roses - how chic and classy! Lucky you.

  5. Cream roses. Mhmmmm. Lovely! I planted some in our garden last year, but they don't seem to blossom. Or is it still too early to tell?

  6. Those cream roses look divine - do they smell gorgeous too?


Thanks for stopping by.
