The beautiful flowers of Croatia.


I haven’t been back long after a lovely holiday in Croatia which my daughter took me to.
I hadn’t been before and would definitely go back again.
The weather was perfect, the food good and the people friendly.
Some of the flowers were round the hotel and some in Catvac where we had to go by ferry.

I hope this gave you a bit of sunshine which we have all been lacking!
Dubrovnic Old Town is amazing but only took a few photos as my granddaughter and daughter took over 100 between them but not sure how to put photos on here from the mobile.
So these are just a small few that I had taken.
We were going right through the town to the harbour to get the boat to Catvac and if any of you have been there, then you will know what a long walk it is, especially up and down lots of steps!

It is an amazing place so was worth the walk.
Needless to say I was glad when I could sit down on the boat!!

The sun was blazing down and was desperate for a sit and a cool drink.
Not as fit as I used to be! lol

Looks beautiful! My first holiday with Scott was to Pula in the North. Just a short hop over to Venice for a day trip. It was lovely and I would certainly go back. At that time it was still Yugoslavia.

Somewhere I've wanted to go. I'm glad the area is back on its feet and blooming for tourists. Sounds like you had a good time, Rose.

Really pleased you had a lovely time Rose. It looks very beautiful and what a tonic!
I especially love the pale pink Oleanders, they're one of my favourite shrubs and that colour too. The bougainvillias just stunning!

Thanks Klahanie, Shirley, Janey and Kate.
I could definitely recommend this and only 2 hours 15 minutes on the plane which is a bonus!
