Ive been so busy this week, but with not much to show for it!! Anyway, some of the nicer bits have been:
The sunset earlier in the week - these are the true colours, it was so spectacular.
A "Preview"evening at Hackets Florists and Gift shop in the market town of Penistone, South Yorkshire - sadly she seems to have no website, but it is a lovely little shop and brimming with Christmas goodies at the moment!!
My Chocolate Cosmos - which I was assured would also smell of chocolate, but never did. They are in their final bloom now, but they have looked lovely by the back door.
What a posh Christmas display in that shop!!!
My nose is all blocked up...so it doesn't matter if your Cosmos doesn't smell of chocolate, it's just lovely! ;-)
I am having a bit of a 'finish up before I start anything else time at the moment. Which is actually quite nice!!
oooooh, fab sunset and equally fab shop!! Never knw you could get choccie smelling flowers, there'd be a risk of having bite shaped chunks out though here!
Hi Diane, lovely sunset, i love sunsets at Porthmeor,bet you've seen a few of those! Great shop, i do like looking at christmassy things, i love Christmas and i have my Birthday a few days before so always been doubley exciting for me, although the older you get......well, you know, not quite so exciting at 43!!!!!
Do you know what? The chocolate smelling cosmos have always been a disappointment to me. Have grown them a few times, but they never did smell of chocolate. :O(
I had dahlias that were meant to smell of chocolate and never did! we've been conned!
I didnt know that flowers could smell of chocolate.
I love all that silver Christmas sparkle, very sophisticated though I expect most of us have such a collection of decorations it would be impossible to have a single colour theme. If only.
What a gorgeous sunset - there have been some spectacular ones over the last few weeks. The wares in that shop look gorgeous and very elegant. I always wondered if those Chocolate scented flowers would actually smell of chocolate - now I know - still looks very pretty though:)
Lots of pretties in that shop, did you buy anything?
Had another look at the poster and yes I can see it's Julian Clary now, thanks for that!
I'd never hear of chocolate smelling cosmos. Hmmm. Have I missed something?
OOh what a lovely sunset - I think it's called a 'mackerel' sky.
laeving you a comment because I can! All seems fine Diane!
Have a lovely evening with the dancing sequintastic bods!
Ah so that's a mackerel sky is it!?
Lovely post as ever!
Oooh love that photo of the sunset!
I've finally given up on the laptop! Sooo annoying, when you don't understand why it won't properly...& it only happens on 2 blogs Grrr.. I'm on the study computer now, & hey i can leave comments again.
I love the little gift shop! I get peacefully lost in places like that!
Everything is saying "pick me" "pick me" lol
hey Diane, where,ve you gone! missing you, will give you to the end of the week then i'm sending out a search party!!! St Ives maybe!!
Isnt that shop lovely? Some very nice tempting stuff in there at the mo by the looks of it too!
Have heard of chocolate scented flowers before but never had the pleasure of smelling one - a lovely little plant though!
Love Julia xxx
Hello Diane, I have nominated you for an award (please visit my blog to find out more). I would like to say that you should not feel obligated in anyway to participate in this if you do not wish to but I was surprised to be sent this award so I thought I would like to let the bloggers whose work I love know that they are appreciated :)
Why is it cosmos always smells of chocolate in the garden centre but the minute you get it home its gone ?
