The Loveliness of Lilacs


Every time my lilacs bloom, I feel like throwing a party. I wait all year & they’re here for a couple weeks at most, but I’m pretty sure this is what heaven smells like.


Mornings Are Better With Flowers

White and green hydrangea flower blossoms in a terra cotta pitcher sit on a wood deck in the early morning sunlight of summer. By Shalom Schultz Designs.

I love being able to step out into my backyard first thing in the morning for fresh flowers. Very thankful to my home’s previous owner for planting the enormous white hydrangea bush I’ve ‘borrowed’ from time & again.
