Did I tell you how much I love Saturdays.   Well, I do.  It's my day to go and explore and where I end up is anybody's guess.  I can tell you that most likely, you will see me wandering right to where colour and scents co-mingle and where vibrant things are that you can feast your eyes upon.  It feeds my soul and brings me to my happy place.  And the best part about me living on an Island is you can Island hop anytime you want.  And today, I hopped over to another Island, and my soul was not only fed but also inspired!

From the wonderful flower stalls

To going to one of my all time favourite stores!

To coming home with my bouquet from the flower market!

Unfortunately, someone neglected to tell me that
Sea Holly smells like Pooh!  Eeee Gads!

Oh well, it looks pretty!
 Live and learn I say, live and learn!

This weekend I am joining Seasonal Sundays and Today's Flowers
