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




    you need to do a already have the beautiful photo's, and the stories would put it over the top...
    seriously ~
    there are those on-line formats like JoAnne uses for her "Feminine Home" magazine

    as if you aren't busy enough ~ lol!
