may is here

its here .. amid the spent oak leaves nourishing the garden
in a simple bouquet on a crisp white card in the shop

I can hardly believe it is May.. aside from the weather being all wonky, I just feel as though I lost a week or something:)

I love the daintiness of the grape hyacinths against the woodiness of the browned leaves and the splashes of green grass.

Just LOVE this whimsical springtime fancy you've created, Elk! :o) We have so many muscari blooming this year--grape hyacinths are among my fave early spring blooms. Happy Week, my friend ((HUGS))
