~ Relax ~

Have a cup of tea

Smell the flowers
Delight in their B E A U T Y!

It is SPRING!!!!!

One of our afghan hounds who always finds a way to fit
~ even on my little studio chaise.  How he jumps up there and
keeps the pillows in place is a wonder.

My new vintage 'Violets" tea cup, a birthday gift.

Flowers:  my Chinese Tree Peony,
a birthday gift from a friend
several years ago that has moved with us twice,
and often blooms during my birthday week!
(it was only a few days late last week....which is fine, since we were at the beach!)

I AM HERE! Talk about relax? I am doing that right now, chez toi. Look at Drifter Man...he knows how to "se reposer" (to relax himself) like no other! Oh, how they love you, Violet! To have a chaise is a luxury, as well as a linen settee, which I am going to enjoy tonight by candlelight!

Loving all of your images, especially that Chinese beauty of a bloom! Oh how I cannot wait to plant. The good thing is that the snow is melting as it hits the ground and the WHITE I am seeing is giving me a glimpse of how all the white flowers I intend to plant in my flower boxes are going to look!

Hugs to you my darling friend, Anita

Oh Violet, I just adore you sweet companion on the couch! This would make a beautiful painting.
I hope your birthday was an enjoyable one..
