Flowers, Bumble Bees and Daises!! Friday Fun in the Garden!

Well what a Friday!

It all started at around 8.15 am this morning.  Mr. Postie actually knocked the door today! Not the usual Postie who walks the round,  a special one.  The one that has the red van! The one that carries the parcels on his van.  I had to sign for a box.

Mr. Twin and Little Miss Twins, both of them I add,  were interested to see where the box had come from. 'Spain' I said.  OOh! It's Pilar (Pertinitaco). We read the outside of the box and had a giggle.

'The Journey of the Squares' and how they travelled across the sea in a plane, through those dreadful 'ash clouds', landed safely in the UK  and then went in a dark truck and travelled to my home here in the UK. 

The Squares were from Pilar, (Flickr Pertinitaco) and wow! What lovely Squares!!  The Little Squares were very tired after their long......journey so I took them outside to play in the Sunshine. Look what I saw on the Squares!! Little Bumble Bees I thought I heard a buzzing sound...........

Now would you believe that? Bumble Bees had landed on Pertinitacos' Squares!!! Buzz! Buzz! Aren't they just so cute!

Beautiful Flowers, Thank you Pertinitaco!

They played a little outside in the Garden and rested and now I'm pleased to say they feel better after their long journey which took 6 days all the way from Spain.

Thank you so much Pilar, (Flickr Pertinitaco) such lovely Squares. You are very kind making these for the SIBOL project.

Bethel of Bethania often makes us rhymes on Flickr the other day she said........

The nice lady is a very special person... and loves you.

Well Pilar, I'm terribly sorry this Slide Show has taken so long I've been so busy today getting ready for the weekend.  I've been desperate to get the photos on Flickr for you and the Slide Shows made.  I do hope you will sit back now and enjoy your Slide Show!

I hope all our other Sibolettes and Followers (new and old) will enjoy the Slide Show too!

Have a good weekend everyone and thanks for visiting SIBOL today.  Ooh! We have a new 'team blogger' Louise please go back and view her post.  She's relatively new to Blogland and I'm sure she'd love your support on her Blog.

If you put your mouse on the individual Squares (if you have time) you will be able to read the text. The Journey of the Squares!'.

  3. So pleased your squares have now arrived safe & sound with Sue, Pilar...
    We know they will be as safe as the Queens Jewels there with Mrs. Twins...
    I'm thinking we should be getting her a pair of white gloves... like the people wear when handling precious objects...
    She will wear them out playing with them me t'inks... ha ha
    Your squares are breath-takenly beautiful, Pilar so please accept a pat on the back from me...
