I am kind of a freak when it comes to flowers. They’re my shiny object syndrome. Like whenever I walk into Whole Foods, I get stuck at the flower display, and it takes Mikey a considerable amount of huffs and puffs before I can pry my fingers free from those gorgeous hydrangeas, snapdragons, daffodils, tulips, irises and so on and so forth. Then I walk five feet to the left and get entranced by the dessert case. But that’s a whole other shiny object syndrome. We can talk about that some other time.
Anyway, flowers are blooming all over our house, and I must say, they really do lift my spirits — while simultaneously lifting the frequency of my sneezing. But that’s the price you pay for beauty. They’re just too pretty not to have around.
Here are a few shots I took in the yard last night. You get the benefit of eyeing them on a blog. So you can oohhh and ahhh without the achoos. Enjoy!
