Today's Flowers: Marigold and its friend...

Last Friday my youngest daughter went on a jaunt with her school.
They went to a huge piece of land where the owners make wine from their own grapes. The name of this land was "Evharis" which means hapiness.

She returned home full of happiness and laughing and she hugged me warmly hiding something in her hands. She said that she had a small present for me and she opened her handful. Two small flowers were in there: a marigold (katifes in greeks) and a small velvety one in a purple colour which I don't know how it's called. I gave her many kisses and put the flowers in a coffee cup.




Then she told me :
"I didn't know what else to bring you as a present from my jaunt...It's cheap-jack, isn't it mom?"
"No dear!" I said."It's priceless for me that you went on a jaunt and you thought to bring something to me! Thanks a lot!"

You have a sweet daughter! Flowers picked by little hands are always the best when given to a mother.

Hi, Marina!
No, I have not that tree in my garden, but I can see it by my window, like you can see on my blog.
Do you live in Greece?
I wonder to visit your country. I will, one day!
Great week for you and your family,

Flávia
