Joyful Simplicities.

A very simple, gorgeous country bouquet with picked flowers and herbs, to adorn your home with... one of my favorite joyful simplicities for sure!

Peonies, rosemary, Hydrangea quercifolia, Geranium, Graminae (Poaceae), lilac (Syringa vulgaris).

And kissed by sun beams! Aaaahhhh. Pure bliss.

I'm so loving to admire and pick many wonderful flowers in this glorious corner of the world. There are soo many varieties, and wow they're soo big. Their colors are so vivid, they make me want to grab paper and colors and paint them. I used to sell original watercolors with beautiful bouquets in the past... I may do that again.

I think I have a smile painted across my mouth every single day and all day long! :)

Hope you're having a good week so far!
