Tickled Pink

This morning I decided to treat myself to a cheerful bouquet of pink dahlias (so named after 18th-century Swedish botanist Anders Dahl). Flowers always brighten my day and these vivid pinkies are no exception. They look absolutely gorgeous and quite happy that I took them home with me. If you look closely, you can see them smiling.

Those are beautiful! Still no Fall insight here in SoCal... not complaining... it's better than freezing. ENJOY your weekend! Fifi

PLEASE SIR: I think I need to indulge myself a bit more often!

FIFI FLOWERS: These Indian summer days are lovely, but I'm wishing Autumn would hurry up and arrive here in southern California. There's nothing better than reading a chilling ghost story in the month of October with chilling weather to match!
