Sorry for the late Valentine's Day greetings, but I just now took the picture of my valentine from Grandpère - three lovely camellias from the bush in our garden.  I confess I was more moved by the camellias from the garden than by flowers from a florist.  Our camellia bushes are covered with blooms, so why not have a few inside?

And for Valentine's Day lagniappe, the photo below shows the lovely sunset yesterday, which made me late for Ash Wednesday services, because I had to have a picture of the splendid sight. I think God does not mind that I was a few minutes late, because, after all, the sunset is God's gift.

Late with the comments but those are gorgeous camellias. What a vibrant, lovely colour. The sky is beautiful as well.

If I were you I would have preferred flowers from the garden too, Mimi. :) What a thoughtful gift! I mean that.

Thanks, Cathy. One of my Facebook friends made fun of the standard florist vase that holds the flowers and said he had one just like it, but I told him he was mistaken, that my vase was Baccarat crystal. :-)

Cathy said...

well, in fact I didn't notice the vase really because the flowers are so beautiful, but if you say it's Baccarat crystal, Mimi, I believe you :)

Thank you for believing everything I say, Cathy. You're a true friend.
