FLOWER BED


It's Week 13 of Marie's Take a Word challenge and this week she has chosen BOTANICAL as her word.

That made me think of Rose who liked to spend her time inspecting her gardens until exhausted she would drop down onto the nearest flower bed.

Another great inspirational word Marie.

Thank you for looking.

I have heard of communing with nature but not au naturel!! What a saucy minx. Ann, your lady of the flowers is wonderful. Was there ever such a bed? Absolutely scrumptious! It is so good to see you back at what you do best.
