Flower Power

Hello everyone and Happy Valentines Day!  Hope you are all well.  I'm feeling fresh this week as we went away last weekend.  We went on a National Holidays trip to Harry Potter at Leavesden and spent some time in London.  It was lovely to be chauffeured everywhere for a change instead of having to drive.  We also had a night in a hotel included and it was the Holiday Inn at Hemel Hempstead that we were boarded in, was lovely although we didn't get the chance to try out the leisure facilities.

As I'm here again that means it must be Friday and time for a new challenge over at 
The theme this week is as my blog post suggests "Flower Power" and this time we're sponsored by
