The Beauty of Friendship by TeaPhotography The Beauty of Friendship by TeaPhotography
This is dedicated to my very dear friend Jocelyne :iconjocelyner: for her BIRTHDAY on November 2nd!!
:boogie: :dance: :woohoo: :cake: :party: :rose: :cake: :heart:
[as i write this, it is still one hour left of her b-day my time... but i'm late her time already... :lol: ]

Jocelyne is a most beautiful person and friend, through and through, and has come to mean so much to me, not just on dA, but in my life. She is genuinely one of the best people I've ever come to know for many reasons. :aww: :rose:

I've known her for a long time already on dA, but it feels like I've known her much longer in real life. She's been supportive to me in so many ways, but her lovely kindness just seems to go beyond the internet realm. I'm lucky to know her, and I just can't say enough, and if I tried, I'd be writing one rather large epoch story...
;) :heart:

This flower is from a kind of tree that grows quite prolifically in the area where we've moved, as I've never seen it before in my life 'til I've moved here. It begins blooming at the end of August and blooms more and stronger all through December/January!
The town is just full of these bushes and trees covered in huge purple blooms, which when you ask anyone they call them Purple Velvet Beauty Bushes. :lol:

We have a gigantic one in our front yard and two small ones in our back yard- so there you go! :)

I also adore Jocelyne's work; here is some for you all to enjoy, too:




Dear Jocelyne,
Thank you for everything, and for being there for everything-
"the good and the bad" - you are one amazing friend, and I adore you! :aww:
It's been a true pleasure... since day one. :rose: :heart:
I wish you so much of all that is good, now and all the days to come... :tighthug:
Much Friendship, Tea




That's What Friends Are For
by Dionne Warwick and Friends...

...Keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for....

Just beautiful classic... :happycry:



~~~~~~~~~:rose:

[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.
