One from our garden before the rain battered them to the ground. One of my favourite flowers..I love the golden centres !
It is half term and and I don't even have grandchildren to look after. This freedom is quite intoxicating , how did I ever have time to teach ! Smile
Huge thanks for all your comments and mails, I always love to hear from you all.
