Seeing as it is still February and I am playing ‘catch up’…

I thought Valentine’s Day roses…

would fit this challenge nicely.

Back to St James Park in london.

I spent ages trying to eradicate two large clumps of this bush

from around the family home in my youth.

A pick and shovel were the tools of trade.

And new shoots would sprout while I was having a cup of tea.

I know it as Castor Oil Bush.

Not sure it that is anywhere near correct.

But to find it in the middle of London

and only a five-minute walk

from Buckingham Palace…..

 

And not far from the above monstrosity was

this beautiful Dahlia…and friend.

Was wondering what flower I would post this evening…

…then it dawned on me that I had photos of some roses

purchased for MGW on Wednesday for Valentine’s Day.

 

Hope everyone had a

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Not sure whether to call this the Yacht Club, the Marina,

or play it safe and refer to the

Valentines Day 2017, has come and nearly gone

at the time of writing this post.

The big difference this year was…

sunset_geelong_4891The big difference this year was that No 1 Son’s girlfriend

organised a fish and chip dinner/eat out

at Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Although a bit on the chilly side of hot for this time of year,

a great night was had by all.

MGW had been telling any of the school girls who asked

what she was doing for Valentines Day,

that we were double dating with our son and girlfriend,

which they thought, or said, was pretty cool.

Not sure if No. 1 Son would have thought so.

However, he is no longer the boss!!!!

Why fish and chips?

It is something she has missed,

or has not had ‘family’ to share it with,

since moving to Melbourne.

  It also gave me an opportunity to capture some sundown silhouettes.

Hope you enjoyed.

roses_4445when I found and purchased these roses,
roses_4446for MGW, that I JUST had to post something.

roses_4448Blood pressure is now easing with the thought…
roses_44441that I have around ten months without the pressure of

Christmas, birthday and Valentine’s Day.

Hmm…!!!

Just remembered wedding anniversary and Mother’s Day

Oh, well…at least there is a bit of breathing space between now and then.
