The Best Of Birthdays x

This was one day I wasn't particularly looking forward to this year. But it turned out to be one of the best birthdays I've ever had!

It started with birthday banners, balloons and
lots of pressies to open full of special gifts.

Then a surprise bouquet arrived :) Beautiful x Then off I went with a friend to one of my favourite places Decorative Country Living.

I actually ran out of vases by the end of the day! The house smells lovely.

Heartfelt cards with words that meant so much.

And daisies. There always has to be daisies. My garden is full of them this year and they make
me smile everyday. :)

Lots of friends for the tea party. Suzanne has been my friend from our first day at school 42 years ago.

Ahh delicious cakes made by my Rosie Roo ... Yum
To all of my family, friends and facebook pals I would like to say a great big thank you for making it such a fab day xxx

Daisy Moon at the Beach

My recent trip away has been such a life saver.

To fall asleep listening to the waves on the shore and wake up to this magical view.

So many individual shops to explore and a few favourites.

I found a gallery full of wonderful paintings and this is the place of my dreams. A small place by the sea with a daisy trail to the front door.

St Ives has so many pretty little side streets with colourful boxed gardens.

And then there was the beach... I can't remember the last time I felt such peace. Just spending time watching my friends little boy playing and exploring his new surroundings. Searching for sea glass and small pieces of driftwood. Feeling the sand between my toes. Memories of childhood...magical.

The hedgerows were full of beautiful dainty flowers...

...and pathways that lead to ...
... secret gardens. A little piece of heaven on earth.

Enjoy your evening my blog friends. x
