Very nice Jacob. I can't stand it when you go to a restaurant and you get plastic flowers. Now I'm wondering what was on the menu.

Bibi said...

Very pretty, though I don't know flowers' names, not that it really matters!

The flowers look real - are they real? Much nicer than articifial silk ones.

It always nice to find real flowers on a table...

It's a beautiful arrangement that undoubtedly enhanced the atmosphere and your meal.

That's a nice way to focus attention and from a great grand pa as well. I never get to look at photo editing software, yet, not that I could'nt do with it! Touche, we have a grandchild due at Christmas, it will be special!

I wonder what the cuisine at Stone Creek restaurant might be. Certainly not Stone Soup.

B SQUARED said...

Beautifully composed and framed. Is the tea sweetened or unsweetened? After all these years, I am still not used to a waiter/waitress asking me.

Jacob said...

@ B Squared - Well, the waitress was sweetened and the tea unsweetened!

Jacob said...

@ Brattcat - I think it's "middle American."

Jacob said...

@ Blossom Flower Girl - Yes, they are real!

Steve Myers said...

Nice Dreamy focus.
Shooting flowers is on my roundtoit list.

I like real flowers no matter where I am. Even in my garden. Those look like Alstroemeria---very nice. MB

Tricia said...

Halcyon said...

Very pretty! And glad they use real ones!

Lois said...

How pretty! That's a nice shot Jacob.

My favorite - Peruvian Lilies (Alstroemeria). Alas, they do not grow in Michigan, but they are so beautiful in gardens where they do grow. Thanks for the picture.

Classy! I bet the food was good too.

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - Glad you liked the flowers! I can empathize with your keyboard problems. I can barely handle the English one; the German, nein!

tapirgal said...

You're getting such nice images with crisp, colorful flowers and faded edges. That lemon and glass in the lower right just adds the final touch!

Wolynski said...

How lovely to dine with real flowers. I hope the food was as good as the decor.

Rob said...

A pretty arrangement fit for the centerpiece.

Paula said...

What did you have for lunch, Jacob. Enquiring minds want to know.

Unseen Rajasthan said...

This is beautiful .I must say simply beautiful !!I could not post for past few days because i was busy in my friends wedding.Hope all well.

Dan J. said...

Gorgeous flowers. You are lucky to be in a place where beautiful plant life can be so plentiful year round. There are a lot of things I love about the upper midwest...... but you would be hard pressed to go anywhere around here and see fresh cut flowers on the table.

Small City Scenes said...

Hellooooo!! are you two OK? off visiting ??? MB

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scenes - Yes, we're fine. Just worn out and have had no time! We're in process of selling our house and moving ... plus other "social" commitments and I haven't had time to do anything else!

Thanks for caring!

Jacob said...

@ Paula - That was a couple of weeks ago and I honestly don't remember. But then I don't remember a whole lot about yesterday, either!

Frank said...

Jacob - I figured you got as swamped as many of us do with family, holidays and life's interruptions. Moving? Condo? Ocala? (Or did you buy right on the Gulf in Cedar Key?)

Your absence leaves a hole in our online world and we can't not notice that Jacob's missing.

I hope everything goes smoothly; it's a tough time of year to be moving. (We are having major structural work performed -unexpected repair- in our 80 year old house and Christmas is kind of on hold.)

Good luck!

Jacob said...

@ Frank - You are too kind, my friend! But my little heart jumped a bit when I read your words!

Yes, I'm just swamped. We're selling and moving to Stone Creek! A villa! Downsizing! I've even bought a golf cart! Can you believe? But there is so much to do ... and so little time! We're closing on the 21st and moving on the 22nd. Then driving to Fort Lauderdale on Christmas day!

Sorry about your unexpected repair! Those things never, ever happen at the proper time! I guess, though, with an 80-year old house, it is to be expected. That's even older than I am!

Hope all goes well with you.

I'm trying to play a bit of catch-up this afternoon until we have to take off for a meeting/dinner in The Villages.

Thanks again, very much!

Hi Jacob,

Lovely shot!
I had no idea you were moving. I understand if you feel a bit tired, because moving is terrible. I mean - so much to do. I remember the last time we moved. It takes a lot of time to pack and to un-pack. Chaos in the house and in the mind.

I hope everything will work out well for you.
I look forward to see pictures of your new house and of your golf car-:)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Best regards
Asta
