Weathered oak and zinc are the perfect foil for my lilac blooms. The delicate color and constitution of the petals intensifies against the gray.
The flowers have reached the perfect stage for cutting. And they have such a heavenly scent! I don't have a lush flower garden, and so these few blooms over such a short season feel like a spring holiday to me.
I can look out onto this east patio from the heart of the house, so I'll enjoy the few stems I've cut for as long as they last.
The mornings are already warm. It's the best part of the day since our spring winds have started up and drive us all crazy by afternoon.
There are just these few moments to savor a cup of coffee and peruse a pretty magazine before the daily rush begins. So much for a spring holiday!
I hope you get blooming holiday too!
Ciao! for now!
