The laundry can wait

May 27, 2011

There is a staggering amount of household work to be done right now, but we returned home to this. A world draped in lace and confetti, and the discovery that we have not just one, but two lilac bushes in our yard. I feel like a pauper who has just discovered she is heiress to a great fortune. All this heady scent and color in my own backyard. So excuse me while I ignore the dirty bathrooms for just one more day. Those blooms only last so long.

    Love the Dutch tulips in your garden!

    Thank you Nelleke! They have been one of the highlights of my spring, especially the ones my mom brought home from the Netherlands.
