Waiting for Roses...

With this crazy year we have had in the Northwest....
 
I am still waiting on my first Roses blooms
 of the year...
 

 
I check each day,
full of anticipation...
 


 
this Gertrude Jekyll
is so close...
 
so close when I bury my nose up against this bud
I can get a faint whiff
of what is to come...
 
ahhhh
 

 
we have suddenly had a heat wave,
our cold wet days
became a long dry spell,
the temperature soared into the mid eighties...
 
and the blooms,
withered so quickly on this Weigela...
 


the Pink-a-Boo
has just begun to Peek :-)
 
 
I love pairing these small sweet blooms
with roses....
 



the current show stoppers
are the Columbines....
 

 
there are so many varieties...
 
I love everything about them,
their soft pastel colors,
the layered petals...
that will forever make me think
 of a flouncy ballerinas skirt...
 
graceful
 

the Dutch Iris...
 


 
Sweet Rocket...
 
which always reminds me to take a trip into the hills
where it grows wild and abundant...
 

 
I have been working on removing
my raised vegetable garden beds...
 
this patch of self seeded chives,
I have left be for now
 just to enjoy its beauty...
 

 
waiting patiently,
or at least I am trying to....
 
Have a Beautiful Day....

Tea...

 
Well,
you know I love flowers
and
you know I love pretty tea things....
 

when you combine the two
 it is magic!
 
We have shared a lot of tea
together these past seven years....
 
 
so today I have pulled some of my favorites photos out
to re-share!















 
I hope
I have inspired you
to grab a cup,
a cookie
and a pretty bloom...
 
to take a moment for yourself...
 
love yourself today!
you deserve it!
 
Happy Tea Time...
