    Patty, thank you. Stay safe and warm. I hope it doesn't get below 35.

    Al, thank you.

    Digital Flower Pictures, don't usually turn the photos into soft focus but because they were a little bit out of focus, the softness really helped and seemed to improve them.

    Chubskulit, thank you. I'll be popping over to your blog soon. You have a great weekend too.

    Carletta, thank you too. I should say that my dear hubby took that photo.

    Guild-rez, I'm glad these flowers brought a little warmth into your day.

  17. Denise: Certainly a beautiful capture. I may have to visit florist to get new flowers.

  18. Denise m dear I love your soft focus roses, they have such a christmassy feel, as does your delightfully doctored header.
    I thoroughly enjoyed your seals as well.

  19. Beautiful!
    I just finished arranging a centerpiece for my dinner party table for tomorrow. I used greens from the yard and red roses from Costco.
    I'll have to remember to get a pic of it.

  20. I love the dreamy and holiday feel to your photos. Lovely!

    Eden, thank you.

    Gill, thank you too. Maybe next week. I know you're a busy lady.

    Fishing Guy, I like to visit those florists. Sometimes I even buy some flowers ;) I truly wish I could fill my house with them every day. Reality however....and like anything else, I probably wouldn't appeciate them as much.

    Arija, how kind of you to say so.

    Linda, I saw your festive table just now. It's gorgeous!

    Tammie Lee, thank you.

    Ramblingwoods, that works for me too.

    Tabib, I thought so too.

    Diane, thank you. I thought so too.

    Ellen, thanks for stopping by. I'm a bit late getting round to everyone this week, but I'll be over ASAP.

    Nonizamboni, I bet those sweet peas looked gorgeous.

    Chie Wilks, they certainly can.

    Rosamaria, congratulations on your husband's graduation. I'm a little late visiting too but I'll be over to look at your flowers, that is if I haven't been there already. I'm having a hard time getting myself organized this week :)

    Margaret Cloud, it does look a little different doesn't it?

    Thank you everyone, I've thoroughly enjoyed reading all your comments. Puts a smile on my face each time.
