Yesterday, a blogging friend and I met for lunch.  We’d commented and emailed back and forth for quite some time now (years), but we hadn’t met…yet…until yesterday 🙂  We had a lovely quiet chatty lunch and afterwards we wandered a little and found a lovely little garden nursery.  We both made a little purchase for our family gardens 🙂

I purchased a couple of Echinacea ( Cone flower) plants.

Echinacea 750wm

I admit to buying the plant to photograph, as well as to plant in my garden 😉  I think the flowers on these plants are amazing!  Photographing it in a pleasing way was tricky though.  Once I got a good look at the plant up close, there was a lot more information, plus imperfections in the plant… which I still think it is amazing!  First time I’ve looked that closely at this flower.  So, here is my effort 😀

Thanks for a great day D.  It was lovely to meet you!!

  1. Nice to hear you had an enjoyable time in person with your digital friend. I’ve often wondered if i would have the same rapport in person as I do with folks I have met through this blog – I’d like to think so. Good job with the flower shot too – closeups are not an easy shot to pull off.


    1. Hi Robert and thanks! 🙂
      In my experience, we get to know our ‘digital’ friends as though we were writing old fashioned letters.
      I have met some lovely people I have corresponded with 🙂
      Thanks on the thumbs up for this shot. It was a tricky one.


  2. What a nice little story. Must have been wonderful to meet a new blogging friend.
    Love the photo, too. Thanks for visiting my blog.


    1. Thank you. I cant resist flowers / plants. These have died down for the winter now. Hope to see them again next year.
      Once again, I agree 🙂 I occasionally buy (or receive) a bunch of flowers. I make the most of these 🙂
