Good day, blog friends.
And happy dang Monday to you.
♥Doug was away on a fishing trip this weekend so I was left to hold the fort down. He had a great time and came home with leftovers from camp, but no fish for the freezer. As for me? Well, I soaked in as much springtime as I could. And I picked some flowers for the house...
My blog friend, Flower Jane is hosting Flowers in the House, so I'm linking up with her today. I challenged myself to use a different vessel for my arrangement this month, and went with an old tea kettle I picked up at a yard sale many, many moons ago...
All of the flowers came from my garden which makes me all kinds of happy. I added one of my mom's doilies, sat it on top of my great-grandmother's sewing machine, and admired it the whole rest of the day. This has to be my favorite Flowers in the House moment. Ever.
I have been keeping some basil cuts in a little bottle on our kitchen window sill and on a whim I went out and snipped a few blooms from our front yard sea-of-poppies. These were some sweet eye candy for the day as well...
This is the time of year that, if you came to Arizona, you would surely drop all future plans and start scheming a plan to move here. The climate, the blue skies, the beautiful flowers in bloom - you'd swear this is what heaven feels like.
We'll just live in the moment and soak it all in.
I loved the slow pace of this past weekend - loved sitting outside and enjoying our garden, cutting flowers and also sketching and photographing them. I was whining last night about going back to work today. It's so hard to be holed up in an office while outside is calling me! ~sigh~ Spring fever, big time.
But, duty calls so I'm off to tackle the new week.
I think I'll go outside and gather up a little handful
of flowers to have on my work desk this week.
Wishing you a week of sunshine, spring time and of course,
