I was amazed by the flower display
in our little town centre just up the road from me.
At least I know where some of the money goes I pay to the council.
See for yourself:
A lovely display
every time I go shopping!
We found this Spanish flower
Google tells me: it is a Bougainvillea
and can grow here in a conservatory too!
It is fascinating with 3 dark pink leaves
and 3 white tiny blossoms inside.
What a marvel!
Sit back and enjoy!
As you can read on my last post a beach makes me happy.
That is mainly because – for me – a beach has to have palm trees and I loooove them.
I have had the great opportunity to go to a beach in the north of Mallorca.
I saw many palm trees , all different ones:
short palm trees
tall palm trees
thin palm trees
thick palm trees
romantic palm trees….
and I love them all, I just wanted to hug them all!
I’ll leave you with some other beautiful breath taking views:

July has gone so quick with some really hot days and more not so hot.
August is here now and this is really summer and holidays, well for me.
Let’s hope August has many wonderful surprises for everyone in store.
Sometimes is nice to have no plans but let life surprise you.
You can …..
make a surprise visit,
surprise a loved one with a small gift,
give a surprise hug,
surprise someone you miss with a kind text message or phone call,
surprise someone to show them they are special to you.
Hope you have a lovely surprise!
