Spring arrived!

Around the blog-o-sphere I see pictures of magnolias in full bloom. Ours finally decided to follow!
It took a while...
The pink/purple flowers add much needed colour to our front yard.
The background of today's lovely blue sky gives the colour some extra depth.

Only one flower... isn't it a beauty?

And last weekend I needed something greenish for the lunch table... no time to go to the market for flowers. So I ended up with this little garden bouquet: violets, forget-me-not, parsley, rosemary and... some soft pink weeds! So you see, there is a reason to keep the weeds ;)
The end result was perfect for a springish tablesetting for a simple & cosy lunch with dear friends!

Hope you all have a sun-filled week & for us... spring break is around the corner... HAPPY!

Magnolia een van de mooiste bomen (althans als hij bloeit) die er bestaat. Doet me terug denken aan Lyon. In het parc tête d'Or staan heel veel magnolia bomen.
