May Flowers

Alex and I hung out by the chiminea fire on Sunday night, the perfume of the lily of the valley and daphne strong enough to compete with the smell of smoke.  

I love my garden in spring, the slow, fireworks show of blooms and leaves unfurling.

Sigh. I so wish I were in Toronto hanging out in your garden. I miss lilacs & other flowers that do well up north. Also, I'm ready for a change.

xo to you Diane...
