One of the amazing blessings of the blogging world is making new friends through cyberspace, and once in awhile actually connecting with them in the "real world."
Such was the case this past week, when a friend and I called on a blogging friend, Georgianna, when we were visiting the Pacific Northwest.
Georgianna invited us into her beautiful garden for a little walk-around,
and a delicious lunch, where we relished in the moment of meeting someone face to face that we had previously known only through our blogs.
Georgianna is an amazing photographer, so we were especially thrilled when she shared her office with us, where all that creativity crystallizes once her camera comes in and the pictures are downloaded.
Shooting florals are her specialty,
but entertaining us as a hostess with salads and desserts
which were almost too beautiful to eat, is her talent as well.
Next we enjoyed a special treat when we watched her style a shot with some local flowers from
the farm of a friend.
Living amongst such beauty in the Northwest
where flowers like this thrive in the lingering weeks of summer must be a special gift indeed.
Meeting you, Georgianna, and spending the afternoon with you and Lori, my Florida friend, was an afternoon I'll long cherish.
May our friendship which started out so many months ago with a comment or two on our mutual blogs bloom into a relationship which we'll always nurture.
Treat yourself and spend some time on her blog, where you will find beauty to grace your day.
