Spring inside and outside

springtime in the park
Camellias hanging so heavy with bloom they sag. Why don't we have a camellia in our garden? That shall soon be remedied. AdRi mentioned a bright red one, and now my gardening friends are providing all kinds of tips and leads for red camelias. So grateful for them!

springtime hyacinths and daffodil
If they ever invent smell-o-vision as a plug in for these blogs, this is one of the first I'll use. I wish you could smell this arrangement. Hyacinths and daffodils from the garden, but the scent fills our dining room and I smile everytime my nose catches it. Pure spring captured in a scent.

It's spring inside and out here right now. Treats for both the eyes and the nose. Lucky!

It's been a while since I've been here and it's great to visit! Your shop is adorable! And, the exceptional women thing is very cool. You're up to great stuff over there. Your blog makes me smile too!

Lelo~~ Until I read Ann Lovejoy's book on fragrance in the garden, I never considered the pleasure of mingling different flower scents. Right now I've got Hyacinth, Daphne odora and Skimmia japonica together in a vase. Delish!
