Welcome to our weekend of relaxation and inspiration- hope you've got plenty of coffee ready and wine for later on so settle down and enjoy the fun.
You should have arrived here from Jenn K's blog and be well on your way to collecting all the flowers.
Tell me how you relax- what do you do to destress and chill?
Me .....I have a few things I do depending on what I am relaxing from.
Sometimes I like nothing better than to disappear into my own little world with my dogs- be it training with them, or just a long walk in the woods or along a beach or even just to snuggle into them and realise how much they mean to me and how much I mean to them.
On other occasions I like to loose myself in my crafting and find that soooo relaxing and before you know it the dinner is burning, housework not done again and a pile of chores still waiting to get done!but at least I've had fun!
Other times I like nothing better than a good old pamper to relax- whether its a massage, Indian head massage etc or just a plain old soak in the bath and a nice smelly candle burning and then a little facial, nail file and polish ,feet up, on the couch, good movie and a glass of wine
So let me know what you do to relax
On to my chosen flower which is a PANSY.
I think they are so lovely and are such hardy little plants and often survive freezing conditions.
They are very fragrant and edible and are high in Vitamin A and C and the flowers can be used to make syrup, flavoured honey and salads.
They are also useful a dye and were used by the Greeks as a herbal medicine.
So collect my PANSY and now hop off to the
wonderful Mrs J's blog .......HERE
to continue with your flower search and good luck with the many wonderful prizes that are up for grabs this weekend and don't miss all the wonderful fun and tutorials etc
Thanks for dropping by and see you soon
