  1. That fuchsia is so pretty! Sounds like your week was wonderful. Just wondering if the other three Ladies That Lunch already knew each other or were you all new to it. I'm glad it worked out so well, a new beginning.

    1. It's lovely, but sadly just an annual fuchsia.

      The lunches have been running for about 3 or 4 months now. A and J arrived together and obviously knew each other but I don't know if that friendship predates the lunches. They didn't seem to know V and vice versa but I think there are usually more people there and if that's the case, you are seated with a maximum of 6 to a table so it's quite possible that they just hadn't been seated together before.

  2. It all sounds so good - I'm glad it has been a lovely week for you. xx

    1. Thanks Joy. It's been a great week and I'm excited at how some of the things have worked out. xx

  3. So many wonderful things about which to be cheerful and grateful! I'm so happy that the new things you've tried (the PT and Ladies Lunching) have worked out so well. I love the fact that you went for 2 plants and returned with 6! :D

    1. Thanks Bless. Things seem to be going well at the moment so am keeping my fingers crossed that it continues to be the case.

      I could have easily bought even more plants so I feel I was quite restrained 😂

  4. You do snap the most wonderful flower photos. What a lovely post all around.
