flower power ...

my sweet daughter surprised me with a day in the country
mother's day afternoon
where we made floral wreaths & fairie crowns
there is such joy being with and working with flowers &
I am thinking that we don't wear fairie crowns near enough!
:-D
Flowers
really do
intoxicate me
~Vita Sackville-West~
patiently waiting for the peony to bloom
{garden photos are from last year} ♥
thinking *flowers*
this long {planting} weekend
flower power
garden guardian
When words escape
flowers
speak
~Bruce W Currie~

Morning Glory
is the best name
it always refreshes me
to see it
~Henry David Thoreau~
Give and Take.
For the bee ~ a flower
is a fountain of life.
And to the flower~ a bee
is a messenger of love.
And to both, bee and flower,
the giving and the receiving
is a need
and an ecstasy.
~Kahlil Gibran~
we spotted our first butterfly last weekend
winged beauty
Where you have a plot of land
however small
plant a garden.
Staying close to the soil
is good for the soul
~Spencer W Kimball~
~have a wonderful long weekend ~

I so agree with you Deb, we definitely do not often enough wear fairy crowns. You look so beautiful in it, by the way.
I can't wait to see my morning glories in bloom this summer.
Have a lovely day,
Andrea

hi Andrea ~ thank you so much! We had a wonderful time & the fairie crowns are drying now and looking really pretty.
Like you, I love the morning glories ... in our garden they pop up all over {never really know where} :-D as I just scatter the seeds at the end of the season and let the wind decide where they should land ♥ and it's always in the loveliest spots.
have a beautiful weekend xo
