Floral Delight #FolksyFriday

Anyone know where that week went to? NO? Me neither. Still here we are again with a Folksy Friday to do and it seems like 5 minutes since I did the last one.
Well today I have decided to have flowers of the sort that don`t get crushed by wind and rain, that retain their beauty and colours to be enjoyed for years rather than weeks. There are some stunning floral creations on Folksy, from bouquets, clothing, jewellery, bags, homeware, accessories and so much more. There are so many categories I could go on and on and on..... and very often do. Tee Hee....
Makes me think of the first ever blog post I wrote. I recall sitting there, faced with a blank page and not knowing what to write. Then when I did start to write I felt like a bit of a plonker. After all who was going to read what I had written? But like we all do, I started to really enjoy it and found I was quite good at running on endlessly to an unseen audience. To be honest I`m quite good at waffling on in real life too. I call it a conversation in real life but the victim`s may not think the same way. Perhaps I should ask them..... Hmmm... maybe not, they might tell the truth and say it`s boring.
Anyway, now I love blogging and love it they folks seem to like the make up of this blog and come back to visit. It`s nice to know I have an audience who like what I do. Well... even if not like, I don`t mind if you just come to laugh at my inane witterings, I`m not proud. A view is a view in my book, regardless of the reason.
Oh man.... I`m at it again.... At this point I will stop wittering on. Maybe...
As ever, to see a description or bigger picture, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
Have FUN and ENJOY!!!

What has happened to our weather
JUNE? Knock me down with a feather!
More like April with these showers
it`s going to ruin the flowers.
Wind blowing hard and strong.
In June? It`s very wrong.
April`s weather was more like June
then we liked the extra boon.
Not now, I just want summer,
this lot is a real bummer.
Torrential rain hammering down
that produces a very big frown.
Wind blowing almost like a hurricane
hard to walk, even with a cane.
Washing has to be double pegged
else before you know it, it has legged
it, over the fence and far away
where will it be found today??
Joking aside it`s really not funny
why isn`t it warm and sunny?
The farmers said its far too dry
they shook their heads with a sigh.
Prices will go, up this is bad,
now it`s too wet, how very sad.
The prices will still go up anyway
regardless of the weather, we have to pay
through the nose in every season,
always the same, just a different reason.
What would they do if the weather was the same
they would have to invent a different game.
Still, for very different reasons,
I really love all the seasons!!

  2. A sunny day in here Berkshire for a change and perfect to show off all your gorgeous floral finds! My poor roses are looking very beaten and bashed by the weather, so really appreciate your floral uplift today.
