Garden Party

Three dear friends treated me to an early birthday lunch and each gave me a garden related gift. Do they know what I like or what?
Isn't that a fun saying on the pink bag "Keep Calm and Have a Cupcake."
A festive painted ceramic snail, a brilliant red begonia and a Coconut Sherbet pansy in a blue Easter basket.
THANK YOU LADIES.
Friends are as sweet as garden flowers.
