I do enjoy creating cards to honor others' loved ones.
It is one of my most favorite/most non-favorite day
to create cards.
It's my favorite because it's the time to pull out the flowers,
the glitter, the ribbons, the lace
and of course, the images. All of these elements make for the best cards.
Allows me to use all flowers
that scream "Springtime."
These flowers - lilacs. Reminds me of my childhood
when I picked these beautiful flowers.
Not only for my mother
but for my grandmother and my teachers.
Lilacs are one of my favorite Springtime flowers. Their scent is so recognizable. A bouquet in just one room allows the scent in every room. Lilacs can be combined with greenery and other flowers, too. The vessels are sometimes the best part. I love the "unexpected" vases.
Lilacs are great as a stand-alone in a bouquet or in a vase or even a jar.
We cannot forget about the sweet smelling peonies.
What better way to celebrate
than with some daffodils?
Or how about some pansies?
(Those were my mother's favorite!)
Tulips say "Springtime" as well.
I'd love to have a bucket of these on a chippy chair,
How many of you
wandered around in a field of wildflowers
and brought home a bouquet just like this
for your sweet mamma?
Nothing says "love" like roses.
I was very fortunate to have a bouquet
delivered the other day and they are beautiful. Thank you to my daughter. I cannot wait to dry them to display in the living room. The soft and smoky lavender color will be perfect. I think I'll put them in a lavender vase from Mother's Day years ago.
It's all about those we honor. And it's all about the flowers.
Doesn't matter if they appear in the Spring or not.
