simple pleasure

A dear friend came for lunch and brought the sweet garden posy.
We ate roasted red pepper frittata with melon mint and feta salad
 and sat chatting late into the afternoon until the chilled Cava
was replaced with freshly brewed tea
Next morning the sun's early rays fell lightly, and made me smile
at the thought of a gentle afternoon spent simply,
 in the company of a kindred spirit
may I suggest. . .
phone a friend
invite them over
sit awhile
soak up the last and sweetest days as autumn turns

Brilliant idea, I'm doing the same, a friend is coming for lunch on Friday.

Hold tight! You didn't serve the offending item you mentioned in your comment on my blog to her the next day did you?

Isn't a garden posy like that just THE most delightful of gifts?
You and your friend timed your lunch just right weatherwise, didn't you? It has been vile here.

So nice you and your friend had a wonderful afternoon, Elaine !
I feel 'wilted' too, it's cold here and we have rain and I'm not ready for Autumn yet :-(
But seeing this lovely garden bouquet makes me happy :-)
Nice evening,

A beautiful and poignant post...
And do you know I did just that, alas we had no sunshine, but still enjoyed chatting over a cosy fire and a bowl of home made soup!! hehe.
Happy days...

That sounds as delightful as the posy of flowers is.

A great reminder of how important it is to set aside a special day to catch up with good friends. Seems like the perfect little set-up perfect for a girl's day :)
