If only my sister Fiona were here to see how happy I am to walk out into the big garden and come back to the cottage with an armful! of roses and other flowers to fill vases.  Fiona is a lover of flowers just as I am.  She arranges beautiful displays of flowers every week for her partner Rob’s bar and restaurant called “OST” in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond.

Beautiful pink geraniums are everywhere in the garden

So, Fiona, who is all the way over in Australia, this post is for you my darling little sister.  Every time I pick flowers in the garden I think of you and how much you’d enjoy being with me too.  I miss you so much……….
