May Flowers

My mum was a kindergarten teacher. Of her many sayings, one was “April Showers Bring May Flowers”. I think that needs a revision — April showers bring May showers. At least a drought is not a possibility this year. The incessant rain did encourage these cool purple flowers to pop up in my garden though! I have no idea what they’re called — that’s mum’s job too. We also have a guest puppy today – Milo was visiting and keeping my Lubi company. As far as my outfit… I’m trying to embrace spring. The first time I put this top on my husband said — “It’s too light. It’s not you.” Huh… I guess my black wardrobe really is “who I am” though I’m trying really hard to incorporate some colour! How did I do?

Stop and Smell the Peonies

Stop and Smell the Peonies

The neighbours had these wonderful peonies in bloom. I love peonies. They remind me of visiting my grandma’s house when I was little. It has been so hot here, and my first floor air conditioner broke so I’m not sure how I got up the courage to put on jeans, but I hadn’t pulled out my white jeans since Memorial Day so I went for it!
