The Language Of Flowers~
Our darling wild violets are blooming..if you are French or English or German..Dutch..Spanish..Italian..Japanese..Chinese..Croatian etc..everyone can read a flower~♥
These..pull my heartsrings..~ They are delicate..fragrant..edible..wonderful..magical~
The book a neighbor gave me 3 yrs ago.. The Language of Flowers..ends on Violettas~
Such true words..!Violettas represent modesty..superbly so~
I used Violettas to top our dinner plate plate tonight..the rice.. The rice was made even better than usual because of a recent Jamie Oliver show I watched..he recommended adding a special Preserved Lemon to it..Tiny ones..Round..and beautiful..Mine were bottled in Provence..Lubéron region..I love the addition..He's just so charming an talented..and a great cook..Love him..and his oh so cute family~
Skewered some spicy shrimp..marinated in lemongrass..evoo..garlic..ginger..sugar..hot peppers..lime juice and zest..and some spicy garlic paste..grilled with the small zucchinis..Très bon!
The serviceberry is blooming..tulips..magnolia..(I saw a yellow one at the garden centre..wow..)..Mine is pale pale pink..
The wildflowers are fairy like right now~
Everywhere you look.. a rebirth..I set the fairies out today..their home..the special door etc..
This weekend was very special spent with some very favorite boys..checking out the beach~
It ended on a heavenly note.. a sweet note written by our 7 yr old grandson~
A different language of flowers~
Nana has 3 beautiful little boys.She is "Belle".. and grandad is very intelligent:)
For Grandad and Nana..
Be still my heart~
