Last Monday's high was almost 20 degrees ABOVE normal. We both worked in the garden and enjoyed lunch on the deck. The rest of the week the temps kept going down so that by Thursday our high for the day was 20 degrees BELOW normal. We also got some much needed rain at the end of the week. The result is that it was too wet in the garden to properly gather flowers for a bouquet. Instead I braved the weather and went to an estate sale Sunday morning to see what treasures were left and to take advantage of everything being half of the original price. I came home with this little bouquet of morning glories.
It's enamel set into a pewter bowl, made in China apparently for Neiman Marcus, the fancy Texas emporium.
My husband thought the colors were a perfect match for my fingerless gloves which I wear almost constantly until it really warms up. My hands are always cold when I'm reading a book or working at the computer. I thought the little Heath vase of Muscari that was sitting by the kitchen sink was a better match. So we combined them into one display.
