Such a fragrant time of year, isn't it? I just love lily of the valley. I stick the delicate sprigs into any type of vessel I can. I purchased these small bottles in CA and tied on vintage enamelware tags that came from France....
I always keep a small vase on my bedside table and during the night when I inevitably toss and turn, the fresh scent always makes me smile...snoring husband beside me, or not.
Peonies are another fav of mine. My mother gave me cuttings from my grandmother's plant a couple of years ago and I'm happy to say they've done quite well. I have since split that plant into another 2 and they are growing much like my son and his hollow leg. Like wildfire!
My poor Wilbur. He has the worst cold. I swear he sneezes at least 15 times day. I actually had to wipe his nose with a Kleenex the other day - no word of a lie! And then he starts breathing weird. Not sure why he does that part. This photo was taken a few days ago and he desperately looks like he wants to tell me something. (probably "Can't you see I'm sick? Put down the camera woman!")
I'm trying desperately to get back into the swing of things. Is anyone else experiencing this? Spring has been delayed here with very cool weather - so much so that we don't even have our pool open yet. It has been raining on and off for the past 3 days and I have only just planted all of my window boxes. I am hoping the sun comes out soon and brings with it some nice warm weather.
Hope things are sunny in your neck of the woods!
