May Flowers


Hi everyone! Well, here it is May already. Can you believe it? After our long winter, I've been eagerly awaiting this time of year and the warmer weather and sunny skies that it brings.

For what seems like months now, there's been thoughts dancing around in my head about how wonderful it will be to get outdoors...wondering what flowers I should plant...if I should make a little garden. I try to block any notion of pulling weeds, painting the fence or of voles that have completely ruined my yard. Sadly though, I haven't gotten much of anything done, since nice days have been few and far between.

I'm thinking that instead of saying "April showers bring May flowers," the more appropriate phrase around here would be "April snow brings May flowers." Let's hope anyway, since there's not a whole lot of bloomin' going on in these parts.


A few weeks back the florist called to tell me that they had finally received one of my flower favorites...ranunculus. I needed a little slice of spring so I rushed right over. I can't wait for my yard to start sprouting some others that I love like lilacs, peonies and hydrangeas. Do you have a favorite flower that you plant every year or one that you can't wait for it to bloom?


As I was snapping away, I remembered that I had this pretty round box...it's covered in vintage wallpaper. Isn't it a cute little prop? I wish I didn't love little odds and ends like this so much, I never know what to do with them other than use them for photos. I tell myself that that's a good enough reason to have them around.


Well, that's all for today...just a few flower photos.
Thanks for visiting. Hope you have a happy weekend!
