I’ve just gotten back from a two-day work trip. My husband and daughter got along fine, in spite of H.’s foot injury and crutches (from which she’ll recover fully).
One of the first things I did was to refurbish last week’s Flowers de la Semaine. I found them last night pretty much dead on the kitchen table—I guess they were not a priority around here while I was gone.
The green mums from the grocery store were still going strong, so I pulled them out and washed them off. I added some other stuff from our yard: one sprig of blooming white lilacs from a very low-producing bush; pink hawthorne branches, and some other white branches whose name I can’t remember.
I put this arrangement in a green Royal Doulton pitcher that had been my grandmother’s. The state of my house these days is making me feel a little like a slum-dweller, so I’m casting around for all the refinement I can find.
If you’ve been following Flowers de la Semaine, you know that this cute white doggy is really a little boy named Riley, but when it comes to flowers he likes to pose as Vanna White Dog.
Vanna is now sporting his/her new summer haircut. It was warm in the photography corner today, though, and s/he was having trouble looking the part. Daughter H. stopped by help out…
…and then Vanna pooped out altogether.
Here’s wishing you a weekend that’s full of whatever you need for yourself, your life, and your loved ones. ♥♥♥
