You take some fantastic photos. LikeLike Reply Thanks! I love flowers. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Me too. Roses are my favourite. What are your favourite flowers? LikeLike Reply Irises and lilacs are my favorite. 🙂 LikeLike Reply All the purple flowers then? LikeLike Reply Hmm, irises of all colors, and I like white and pink lilacs, too. In that case of irises, it’s the shape and size, and in the case of lilacs, it’s the scent. I remember that scent of lilacs from my deepest childhood. I planted them under my windows, and when the wind is just right, I am straight back to my childhood. 🙂 Roses are beautiful, too, of course. LikeLike Great Brenda. I love living part of my life, permanently in kid mode. I have a business side to me and a fun/kid side to me. I like writing business books and kids picture books, and that is reflected in my home environment. LikeLike Yes, I have a more pragmatic business side, too. I’m a lawyer, after all. But my inner child is happy these days, picnicking in the sun and turning cartwheels with the fairies. I love that adults like what I write, too. 😀 Thanks for commenting and brightening my day!! Cheers, Brenda LikeLike Glad you are nurturing your inner fairy/child. It’s mega important. Especially with the job you do.

(((HUGS))) Amy LikeLike Reply You have found beauty in such small spaces. The world must be very beautiful to a honeybee. Blessings, Brenda LikeLike Reply Brenda. You are magic! I just was thinking that today. I was watching a bee and asking what that bee sees. Wow. Amazing!! xx Amy LikeLike Reply Your pictures told me that. 🙂 LikeLike *giggle* I know what you mean but I actually saw this bee by one of French Lilac bushes. And YES I have buds. Yippee, if I can only find a way to bottle Lilac aroma I would. I LOVE their fragrance. xx Amy LikeLike Me, too. The breezes have been lilac-fragranced lately. And allergies are on the rise. LOL LikeLike My lilacs are not blooming yet, Brenda, but when they do I will be transported to Nirvana. (GRIN) LikeLike Mine are blooming, and under windows. 🙂 LikeLike Now you WOULD have had to say that to me. Hmmmm….. Gee, why, um, thank you, FRIEND. I am glad for you. If you figure out a way how to bottle that aroma, let me know. xx LikeLike I remember my grandmother gave me a bottle of lily of the valley scent when I was a little girl. And dusting powder. Do you remember dusting powder? LikeLike Oh yes. Yes I do remember dusting powder. OH boy. Does that bring memories. And I also remember the Lily of Valley scent as well. They don’t make it anymore, though. I’ve looked. What a shame. LikeLike Sigh for a youth of soft grandma laps, scented with lilac, fat leather purses full of candy bars and rhinestone cat-eye glasses. I miss her, imperfect as she was, she was mine. LikeLike Brenda, I miss my Grandma too. Especially her lap as she sat on her rocking chair. I wish I could be transported back in time when she held me on her lap, whispering LOVE in my ear. (((HUGS))) Amy LikeLike Such sweet memories. 🙂 Hugs, Brenda LikeLike Comments welcome! Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
