The Guildford Castle gardens are a riot of colour at the moment, with a plethora of poppies in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.

There is nothing like receiving an unexpected bunch of flowers from a friend as a thank you and a farewell.

A blustery day with rain showers. In a brief break in the rain, we wander around the castle grounds to look at the flowers.
It is funny what tiny details you can miss when you hurry on past. I didn’t notice the tiny raindrops on the petals until I was viewing the picture later on my computer.
We watching the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant from the comfort of our living room. Certainly looks cold and wet up in London this afternoon, but it’s good see the crowds of people lining the banks of the Thames, cheering the royal procession. In keeping with the celebrations, I have my own jubilee bouquet of flowers of red and white roses and blues irises.
Beautiful chrysanthemums to brighten up the house. Irresistible.
