Ode To Spring

I'm a seasonal allergy sufferer. However, my season runs pretty much January through December. This time of year, in particular, is a real killer. With all the lovely blooms unfurling and the trees sending out their verdant new growth, I'm a weepy, snotty mess. Not a pretty picture. But, when my complete and total inattention to my garden (and I use that term oh-so-loosely) results in a glorious, heavenly-scented, multi-bloomed lilac bush, it's worth every last achoo! Those fragrant, delicate petals definitely make for a pretty picture. If only Blogger had a smell-o-vision widget.

FABULOUS. I love your flowers (an exotic species here in hot hot heat land), your vase, the lamp, the credenza (fanning myself)... all of it.

Two of my all time favorite blooms. Achoo. White lilacs are so beautiful and fragrant. Thanks for sharing.

Your credenza/sideboard floats my boat. It is wonderful Nelya.

Stunningly beautiful. The older I get, the more I marvel in the miracle that is spring.
Hope you find a solution for the sniffles.
Gorgeous console vignette.
Cheers, Alcira

I commiserate with you. If I don't take my medicine and my allergy eyedrops, I can't see due to the swelling red puffy eyeballs. But the smell out there right now, indeed is heavenly.
