If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. ~ William Morris

Flowers are the Handmaidens of Romance

'The clever woman enhances her charm by wearing fresh flowers and by so doing takes unto herself their fragrance and beauty, for flowers are the handmaidens of romance.'  

The Secrets of Charm ~ Josephine Huddleston ~ 1929

And the garden flowers are now beginning to show their best work.  Although not shown, the peonies are in full bloom, along with the yellow iris and a slowly creeping sea of blue and purple and pink shades.

A last bit of surprise, our first ever blueberries.  Granted our bushes are only in their second year and we will maybe get six, if the chipmunks and birds don't beat us to them but here they are!
