Fleurs

Spring showers bring May flowers, and aren't they pretty?  We're enjoying the last of our purple lilacs this week.  A small change was made to a dining room corner to showcase their lovely color. 

I sewed a small ruffled tablecloth for this white table, and propped some lilacs on top.  They blend well with the colors in this 'Present Pillow' from my Etsy store, as well as the ribbons on the vintage papers:


One of our rhododendron bushes is in bloom, too.  Pretty in pink...


May wouldn't be the same without our little Lily of the Valley flowers peeking up:


I enjoyed sharing blooms from our garden with you, and seeing many of yours.  Happy spring!

Sharing with the lovely whites at White Wednesday, and pinks at Pink Saturday.

it is funny checking in across the country seeing everyone's flowers blooming and gardens coming alive.

Our yard is fake, our plants are fake and the one we do have is an aloe plant, lol

When I am allergic to everything and live in the desert, I have to live thru others to see beautiful flowers and plants.

How luminously lovely are the pale pastels!! And the rhododendrons are a marvel to me, for I'd never seen any til we moved here.

And any small flower in a jelly jar bids a joyous WELCOME better than a dozen roses.

Beautiful blooms! So delicate. I live on the north coast of South America and whatever grows here has to be strong and hardy. I miss my Virginia flowers! Happy Pink Mother's Day!
