Flowers, just not in the house

The plum trees blooming in the hedge-rows on the highway along with sweet honeysuckle on countryside fences make for a picture perfect springtime day. Yesterday, the sky so blue, a bit of a breeze, the sunny day so appealing, it would have been difficult to have spent the afternoon inside. Piddled with some re-potting of plants, floated lazily in the pool, and enjoyed watching (again!) Forrest Gump with my husband on the patio.  
The fence is covered with little white pinwheels 
of Confederate Jasmine 
whose fragrance is so sweet and thick, 
it filled the air around us.

No flowers in the house for this last Monday in April, but seeing these outside my kitchen window ... amazing! 
I know I should have brought some inside, 
but I just couldn't bring myself to disturb the beauty.
Visit flwrjane for Flowers in the House 
the last Monday of each month 
Bet there will be some lovely offerings from all over the world!
The first of the pink daylillies with promises of more to come.


  1. Well when it's as beautiful a flower as that jasmine I'm as happy to see it on the fence as i would be to have it in the house.

    Sounds like a lovely Sunday.

  3. Oh the scent of jasmine and the beauty of daylilies (which often have a wonderful fragrance)--isn't life wonderful?
