More birthday .....

My friend knew that I have been looking for a particular kind of flowering tree since I saw one in France a couple of years ago ...... unfortunately, here in Florida it is considered a nuisance tree (I am talking about Albizia (mimosa), and we recently saw a small bush which looks similar. And lucky me, I was given it for my birthday ! It is the red puffy flower in the pictures. The others are just a few flowers from the garden, there is not much around at the moment, the heat and humidity here kills off most things in August.

Birthday cross stitch

Angelika sent me this gorgeous cross stitch for my birthday - I adore it, she knows exactly that three spoiled cats live in this house and pretty much run the place ! Visit her blog linked to the right here, to see more of her beautiful work.
