kids, flowers and green m&m's....

Today I am filling in a for a lovely friend, who is off visiting the cherry blossoms in Japan - lucky ducky!
I often help out on a Sunday in her florist, or a Valentines day or Mothers day here and there. 
It is such a beautiful shop to be in - it's hardly like work. 
The day seems to fly by, as I just eat, read and sew. I have the kids with me today, as a 'Can - not - cancel - golf - game'  is on!  So I am just kicking back and eating green m&m's - apparently they don't come mixed anymore...lucky they all taste the same anyway.

Nap time still goes on...just on the ground - where else!

Pink roses with the flip side of the petal a darker shade - so clever...

Such a beautiful lime phalaenopsis orchid, the orange contrast in the centre is stunning...

I cannot get enough of pink and green. These pink gerbera's are the perfect candy pink colour. And yes, I WILL eat all these m&m's one after another..after another..after another..

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, these images are gorgeous. I can hardly pass a florist without stopping, the colours & scents get me everytime!

Hi Kelly - I used to help out in a florist too! I loved bringing all the left over flowers home! Cherry Blossoms and orchids are my fave. I also know too well about the "can not cancel" golf games!!!

Hello,

I love working at the florist - I am a florist in my other life, but now I just do wedding flowers for brides from home.
My favs are orchids and frangipani's (not that they are sold as a bunch) and lilies - actually lots of them really.
Would you believe I get bad hay fever too!!!

I have a soft spot for candy pink and lime green.

I remember at school I had to make up a business and do all logos etc, I thought of 'The pink flamingo cactus bar!' then I could use the 2 colours together!
