(94) Featuring the Fantastic Festival of Fabulous Flowers

Welcome my friends, I'm glad you could come to my Fantastic Festival of Fabulous Flowers, which was made possible thanks to the contributions of my friends who have brightened our winter days here in Melbourne, Australia with their fantastic photos of flowers :

We have a special guest, Sally the scarecrow, Marthas and Bailey's resident gardening expert.

Here's Martha is sniffing a rhododendron

Here's a lovely Dahlia from their garden :

 The lovely Zelle is wearing a beautiful flower made by her very talented Mum.

Thanks to Mango, I have travelled all the way to Texas to play "Stop And Smell The Roses" in a Blue Bonnet (the Texas State flower) field. What a great trip, thanks Mango !

And here's a pretty flower bike from Mango's garden, I love it :

A beautiful bunch of flowers from Derby and Julep's garden :

Nana and Uyanga are as beautiful as the flowers :

One of the many splendid flowers from Remington Drive

The wonderful Kira and Scampi relaxing in their yard :


Superb sunflowers and marigold from Dory, Jacob and Bilbo's garden

Booker Man, Asa  and a splendid Crepe Myrtle.

Doesn't Cooper look great with these orchids ?

Thanks again my friends for these lovely flowers, we cherish these beautiful gifts.

Thank you Pip for your card from Chicago, once we have more I will show them in a special post.
I've been invited to Little Princess Luna's slumber party and 100th post party, I'm so excited !

You can enjoy the beauty and smell of flowers wherever you are, they bring sunshine to our lives.

Bella, you really have received some beautiful flowers!! Right now we don't have any because of a heatwave that pretty much killed most things. The rain is back finally and if we get a flower back, we'll send it to you! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Dearest Bella, Thank you so much for the birthday card and goodies <3 I got a tummy ache from eating too many treats on my birthday :( I really like looking at all your pictures, especially where you were dressed like a koala. I've never met a koala before, but I think they look like they would be lots of fun to play with. Keep up the good work here, and I will check back soon. When is your birthday, by the way? I want to be as good a friend to you as you have been to me! xox, Shiro Danell P.S. I've posted a picture of myself with my dad :D
