plus de pensées de fleur

It's my favorite season interlude. The lilacs have shared their clustery démodé blooms. Now the peonies are bursting out! My rose bush has beaucoup new buds popping up each dewy morn.
I could not resist sharing this image of two of my favorite things.

I'm hosting our annual May Day event this weekend and the flowers are on que. I can't wait to pick my first bouquet of roses and peonies to place on the confection table. 

My summers are surrounded and immersed in fleurs. I amour and cherish their simple beauty.

This season I'm going to start a fleur journal. I'm going to construct a fleur scrap book of sorts. 
In the book, pictures and notes about each variety of rose, fleur or herb. Little hints on planting and nurturing Gods beau creations. How to dry hydrangea's, tours and helpful hints on how to make your blooms linger. 
I'm going to sketch and press the restes for safe keeping.
I'll share the images and progress during the construction of the fleur livre de chute.
Here are a few of the images I'm already working with.
Woody violet one of my favoris.

Ayez un beau jour

Ressort extérieur

What fun! Creating a Ressort extérieur setting. I've been taking product shots for Bittersweet. When I finish it's quite dur to get up from the culbuteur. I'm sandwiched in between lavender and lilacs! No reason to leave that spot! Butterflies floating around and an occasional honey bee buzzing.
It's la vie douce!
I wish you were here!

Like a rêver!

I souhait that this would last forever!

Ayez un beau jour

jour de cueillette de pomme

My friend Tina created and captured this lovely vignette. The image shouts été!
I can see myself sitting in the chaise en osier jeans cuffed wearing a blue gingham blouse along with my favorite comfy chaussures de tennis kicked up as a warm summer breeze blows by.

If you look closely at the photo you'll see some of my olive oil soap mixed in.

Tina was so sweet to share this photo. I hope it inspires you and gets you excited about summer! I know it did just that to je.

Tina also has a beau on-line boutique. Her artisan creations are unique and lovely as is her web site. Click here to visit. I am in amour with her charming bandeauxs.

Isn't her magasin exquisite?
