In our garden at this time of year, there's one plant which is definitely the show stopper... our pink camellia. The photo below shows what I see every time I look out our kitchen and living room windows. I couldn't resist rushing outside to get a photo to share with you while I thought of it so you could picture my exact view right this minute. While the individual blooms are nothing spectacular and definitely not as pretty as the double style camellia we have in our front garden, en masse these pink ones look lovely, especially as their pink petals carpet the ground.
And yes, that's Grace in her fairy costume yet again in the photo above. She is still living in it lately, although this week has been a break through in that we've had her stay in her pyjamas in her bed every single night. Her reward for doing so is me promising to sew her something new for her dress up basket.
I'm off to a high tea in the city tomorrow afternoon with my two best friends as a belated 30th birthday celebration for me - one had just had her first baby and the other was in Europe back in March so we agreed to do a little celebration later in the year instead. I can't wait!... I hope the weekend ahead is a lovely one for you all too.
