Floral Friday Fotos: Brightening up the London roads

We are now in England at my MiL’s house. She has had a couple of falls in the past week, and isn’t feeling so good. Fortunately she didn’t injure herself, but the shock seems to have upset her equilibrium. She is stuck upstairs at the moment, as she’s feeling too wobbly to get down to the ground floor. I shouldn’t think that there are too many 101-year-olds living alone in a double storey house. We’re trying to sort out a stair-lift for her, and my weekend is going to be filled with family coming to visit, and a big lunch on Sunday. In the meantime, here are some pretty flowers I saw along the road just outside London.

These lovely displays were placed at intervals all the way along the road, which made the route look really cheerful.

Wishing you all a great weekend. We leave for Florida on Tuesday, so it’s all go.

  1. I hope your MiL is soon feeling better, what an incredible woman she is. The stair lift will be a great idea for her. Lovely flowers everywhere, that’s one thing I do love to see in the towns here. The roundabouts in Somerset are particularly nice, makes driving so much prettier! Hope all goes well for your flight to and arrival in Florida Sylvia…looking forward to further updates! Hugs to you my friend πŸ™‚ xx

  2. It must be hard to have to take off and leave her there, too. She is an inspiration to us all and I wish her a speedy recovery, and hope she doesn’t lose heart and lives another 30 or 40 years. πŸ™‚ She’s got to continue to set a good example for you and hubby! πŸ™‚

  3. MiL is a super trooper. Wish her well for me! πŸ™‚
    The spring is well and truly a thing in Canberra at the moment, the flowers are just stunning, so chippa and pretty! πŸ™‚ Wishing you a lovely afternoon and a great weekend. Cheers!

  5. Poor old Ma-in-law, Sylvia. It can’t go on for ever, can it, even though she’s always been so fit. It will be hard. Hugs, darlin’. We have those flower boxes too, even up here in the gloom πŸ™‚

  6. We have those flowers everywhere in East London too, I love them, they make the whole street lovelier. Hope you can sort some things out for your MiL and she gets better. I can imagine it is a worry for you! All the best!

  7. Wow, a 101-year old lady still living on her own! That’s “Endurance” and “strong” (both photo challenge themes this week πŸ™‚ ). I am hoping you can set her up so she can continue to be independent in her home.

  8. So sorry to hear about MiL Sylvia. Please give her my best regards and healing wishes. Those beautiful flowers do brighten up the roads for sure. Lovely shots hon. πŸ˜€

  9. Sorry to hear that. Hope MIL feels better soon. Have a good time with the family, catching up with one another and swapping stories πŸ™‚ By the way, great shots. Very bright, uplifting flowers.

  10. Hope your lovely MiL recovers soon – they are such a worry aren’t they? We’ve had a couple of scares recently, no falls, but no communication. At 90 yrs old you do start to imagine the worst. But you have to admire their independent nature.
    Have a fab weekend with the family Sylvia πŸ™‚
