Flowers as gifts

I wanted to get something for Annie's godmum, Brenda, for her hospitality. Annie said she loves gardening and I could see that for myself too. So Annie took me to get some plants for her. 

I chose these two plants which Brenda doesn't have in her garden..

 Calluna Heather (Beauty Lady)
Houseleek


Bought them and gave to Brenda. She was happy and she told us that she would build a rock garden for the new plants. Annie will take some photos for me to view when it's done..

By the way, in England, they don't use the word 'aunty' or 'uncle'. So Annie's godmum would love to hear her name called.

I hope my gift to Brenda will survive for years to come..

Thank you, Brenda!

Thank you, Annie!

Hope to see both of you again soon..

  8. yeah, i think only the Asians will use "auntie" and "uncle".. so you just address her as Brenda, sounds closer and more friendlier right?? :)

  12. And Houseleek, I wonder who gave it this name? It's so colorful unlike the green colored leek that we cook at home.

  13. I don't really mind being addressed by my name. But some Asians are being quite conservative, they prefer to be called Auntie or Uncle to show respect towards elders.

  14. I like their culture too, no need to address uncle or aunty, just call name.

  15. Yes, they dont.. I call my sis's MIL by name too.. if it is over here, they would be horrified.. haha...

  17. I suppose all western countries don't use uncle and Aunty. In America they children even call their parents by name!!
