I actually like this one that looks out of focus in the foreground. I like how clear the back ground is a different depth of field.

What we had in our yard over Easter was snow.


Amazing what driving 5 to 6 hours south does for the climate.


>Found another…


all three

Sorry but I am trying to enjoy my summer flowers as long as I can and in photos I get them indefinitely. While picking lavender the girls found another rose on one of the bushes.

>Lavender Sachet


lavender from our yard
The children wanted something to do this morning so I sent them out to pick lavender. Our little bush doesn’t have much left on it at this time of year but there was some. It probably has none now that the girls have had their hands on it. During the summer months I would just pick the flowers and seeds off and drop them in other spots in the yard so we would have more lavender in the future. After all that was left on the plant was picked and florets removed from the stems there wasn’t much just enough for about 1/2 bag.

I am not able to lift my sewing machine at the moment to the table so we looked around for a cloth bag we could use. Then I remembered that Anthropologie uses cloth bags to put your receipt in when they mail you items, I had purchased two crinoline slips recently. So I just happen to have a little bag on hand. The nice thing about their little bags are that they have a real light weave so air can go in and out of their bags with ease. But the other nice thing is the weave is a tight enough weave that the little lavender seeds don’t fall out either.

So in the process of getting my children something to do I received a nice little sachet. They want to pick more next summer so that they can all have little sachet bags in their clothes drawers. Can I say I just love having little girls. The girls suggested that I embroider on the bag. You know that isn’t a bad idea maybe a few sprigs of lavender on the outside of the bag would be real cute.

>A rose is a rose…


the last of the season

Except when they are the roses that have survived being snowed on and things of that sort. I am not sure but these may be the last of the roses for the season from my yard. For being the last of the roses I think they have such pretty color.


>As most know I use to be a florist and if you follow the blog you also know I had to go to the hospital recently for surgery. I am home after 4 days in the hospital wont go into the details as it wasn’t fun. But I am with family and have a 3 month recovery all will be well soon so to speak. While in the hospital I received flowers from my family in California never got a picture of them due to not feeling well. After getting home I received flowers from my old bosses and co-workers put a smile on my face not to often a florist gets flowers. I hope they cheer your day too.


>Yep we have snow already what’s up with that I could have waited a few more weeks on that one. I am just not ready for it yet. I love snow but wanted a few more days of fall.
