Spring flowers and precious memories

April 19, 2014

Spring is finally here to stay in my corner of Texas.  The best part of Spring?  Flowers!  My fence is full of purple wisteria blooms.

But the flowers don't stop there - my Mom put me in charge of the Easter flowers this year - yay!  Loaded up on blooms this morning - roses, lilies and daises.

I put together this arrangement.  I'm pretty happy with the results - I love the color of those roses!  Best of all, my Mom loves it.

I kept the white roses for myself.  The milk glass vase is one that belonged to my Grandfather.  He used to let me fill that vase up with wild flowers, weeds and anything else I deemed bouquet worthy while growing up.  He'd set it on the dining room table like it was the most beautiful thing ever.  When he passed away, I inherited the vase and it is full of precious memories.  So happy to see it full of beautiful blooms today!
