Meeting a lovely Blogging friend

Mutabilis Rose - I took this photo Wednesday 6th may 2015.

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting
one of my favourite bloggers
who blogs at Red Cardinal.
She was travelling from Australia
 via Auckland on her way to Canada.

We arranged to meet at the Parnell Rose Gardens,
being late Autumn there were not many roses in bloom 
however I can always count on good old
Mutabilis, also known as the Butterfly rose.
This is an old Tea Rose
and in Auckland where our climate is temperate
she flowers most of the year!

We lunched at La Cigale a french cafe nearby
where we exchanged gifts.

Trish gave me this beautiful red bird necklace
which represents the name of her blog
Red Cardinal.
Thank you Trish, I love it!

I made this french inspired journal for Trish
as we both have french speaking grandchildren
Trish's live in Canada
and mine live in France!

I'm joining these parties
Judith for Mosaic Monday
Stephanie for Roses of Inspiration
Thank you both for hosting!

 Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt
