Blessed With Friends and Flowers

Yesterday, Mary from A Breathe of Fresh Air, and her husband Bob came to Asheville.  We always look forward to seeing them, though our chances to get together only happen about once a year.

We met at Needful Things Antique Mall where I have my booth (which by the way is almost empty again!  I need to get busy).  Bob, spent some time reading the newspaper in the mall snack bar area, while Mary and I shopped around.  Though truth be told, we really spent more time talking than shopping!

Mary knew I love hydrangeas and our rental home does not have any, so she brought me some cut fresh from her garden.

Today, Mary and I will meet up with Penny from Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen and Jane from Blondie's Journal.  Jane is visiting NC from Illinois. 

And speaking of Friends and Flowers, when Penny came over the other night for dinner, she brought these beautiful petunias for me.

Well, I am off....lots of things to do before we all meet.  Hope you are having a wonderful day!
Welcome Home,


  1. Enjoy your day with friends!

  2. Sounds like a fun time with friends. Your hydrangeas look beautiful. I love purple flowers!!

  3. Hi, Penny

    I just love fresh cut flowers. They are lovely. Have a great week.


  4. You girls have fun. Give everyone a hug from me. ~ Sarah

  5. Have fun, Penny. I know you will.♥

  6. Hi Penny! Oh, you're having fun! Enjoy your time and those hydrangeas are so beautiful!

    shelia ;)

  7. Beautiful flowers and beautiful friends.


  8. Gorgeous hydrangeas! Sounds like a delightful day with some great friends! Enjoy!

  9. Those hydrangeas looks beautiful, Penny! I had several bushes of the blue ones. As soon as I get back from NY, I'm getting three pink ones to plant around the condo. It sounds like you're having a fun couple of days with bloggy friends!

  10. Such lovely hydrangeas, love that blue.

    I have been watching all of the blogger present the flowers that they have growing right now in their gardens, and I am confused...our hydrangea are just little nubbins.

    Yours are in full bloom. If your season is so advanced, what blooms in late summer? Are there plants that we don't have, or do yours rebloom?

    One of these days I have to scoot up to your booth and shop.

  12. Hydrangeas *sighs* Hope to have some one day when the deer decide to go eat someone elses. The blue are just wonderful!

  13. Beautiful flowers and blogging friendships. It just doesn't get any better.

  14. Beautiful flowers, have a wonderful day!

  15. I hope that you have a wonderful time. Gee those Hydrangeas look like a painting. I love the color.

    Have a beautiful day. Tell Jane I said hello. I love her.


  16. Penny, have you thought of growing a hydrangea in a container on your deck? That way you would be able to move it with you. These blooms are amazing, such beautiful color. Gayle

  17. How thoughtful friends are that bring flowers.

  18. How awesome! I saw that Jane was in your area and wondered if you would get together...lucky ducks:>)
    Have fun, I know you will. The flowers are lovely.

  19. Friends with flowers - what could be better? Hope you have a wonderful get together.


  20. I love that you have so many blog friends that you get to see. The hydrangeas. The color is so vibrant. Have a great time with friends.

  21. I'm so glad I thought to bring you some - they looked really pretty in the house.

    Lovely to see you as always - if only we were closer we could spent more time in your area............even dry days, ha! ha!
