Give Me All the Pretty Flowers

Not a day goes by that I don’t miss California but the colder season makes me even more nostalgic than usual. So I’ve been pinning gardens and blooms, flowers and potted topiaries and lots of flowering shrubs lately as a way of coping with the cold weather outside. Hydrangeas and roses always make me smile, I hope they will make you smile too. Happy Tuesday!

    This did indeed make me smile Eva! I love the botanical prints and the beautiful photos. We had our first hard frost this week and all the pretty plants died. It is a bit depressing! Thanks for posting something so cheerful!

      Hi, Elizabeth! I’m glad this post made you smile…but sorry about the plants, the cold season can be harsh that way. That’s one of the things I miss most about Cali, the year-long sunshine and green landscape. Thanks for your comment 🙂
