Quiet Friday Evening

This is crazy. I should be cleaning my house, since a friend of mine will be dropping by tomorrow. Instead I went online, and of course, found more interesting blogs to read. Does it ever stop? You people out there in blog land are extremely creative, and fascinating, I can't help but get caught up, almost like I know you. I figured I may as well write a blog post since I can't seem to get off my butt.

Today the rains finally stopped, it felt like forever, but it was only a few days. I took my camera to work, and snapped some reference photos of flowers. There is a greenhouse there, and in the summer I like to sit inside on a bench surrounded by tropical flowers. It's a wonderful peaceful place, somewhere to get away from everything and everyone for a bit.
Does anybody know what the yellow flowers are in the photo here? I should have photographed the whole tree but I didn't think of it at the time.

Tomorrow an old friend is visiting, and I will spring a little surprise on her. Normally we go for lunch, then the mall, but these days the thought of being inside a mall just depresses me. Besides, I can't spend any money, since I went a little crazy with my art supplies. oops!!
Anyway, I won't tell you what I have in mind yet, because I plan to take lots of photos, and blog about it afterwards, so it is a surprise for you too. She will think I have lost my mind, lol!

I am pretty sure that flower is a frangipani. We have a lot of those trees here. They are gorgeouse flowers and smell so pretty.

Hope you have a fun time with your friend and whatever you have planned :)
