Mother’s Day gift from my sister

imageGardenia
My sister stopped by and brought me a Mother’s Day gift, she is amazingly thoughtful. She knows that I love mason jars so she got me a mercury glass one and Gardenia scented potpourri since Gardenia was our mom’s favorite flower. I hope all moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

My bedroom needed some fresh flowers and I decided to showcase them in my milk glass vase. They diffuse the most amazing scent that carries through the whole room, I wish they grew here all year but, unfortunately they don’t so I have to enjoy them while they last!

Forget me not

Here on Broome Street my forget-me-nots are in bloom and are as pretty as ever. They are a perfect shade of blue with a white inner ring and a yellow center, all that in such a tiny flower. When they are grown in bunches or mass clusters they really show case their beauty. I just love them. These self sow so I’m hoping I have more to enjoy next spring!
