Friday Flower

Sending someone a Friday Flower is something I really like to do.
Today, my virtual flower is a big pink one.
I have no idea what the name is, but it I like that it is big.
I received it from a Dutch mum who also lives here, (thanks again I.).
She came by our new place and as a ‘welcome to your new home’ gift,
I got this. I love the attention it claims, all by it self on the window sill.

Do you know what its name is?
For now, I stick with Big Pink Flower.

Today I want to give my Friday Flower
to my Dutch bestie  (I got this from Melissa, love this expression!)
here in Switzerland, Marian.
She is lovely, has a great sense of humor
and we have the same taste in a lot of things.
Actually, she is on her way to me, right this moment, we are going to see
the movie Eat, Pray, Love with the lovely miss Julia. 
And don’t forget to visit the two lovely ladies who started this FF movement,
Laura and Melissa.
Thanks girls for making Friday a little bit more special!
Gotta go now, bye!

Update:
I just read that its name is
Protea,
Thanks Ria!

      Dreambes, sérieux, tu souilles le nom de Ulver rien qu’en mettant ton casque sur les oreilles pour l’écouter. Tu calcules rien, t’es pas inteligent. Je pige pas comment on peu etre autant limité et écouter du son aussi bon. BrefCe chilhoods end est pour moi une réussite tol..e.a..tsurtt si on le compare a wars of the rose…

    What a beautiful flower. I hope you will tell us what you think of Eat, Pray Love. I still have to read the book before seeing the film.

    Hi Maureen,

    I was going to say that it looks like a Protea and I see Ria has told you that.
    What a beautiful gift to welcome you into your new home. Enjoy the movie and I hope that you are having a lovely weekend

    Hugs
    Carolyn
