Silver May...

A silvery bouquet...

(click photos to enlarge)

A silver goblet...
sitting on a silver tray loaded with baubles.


light purple lilacs...
mixed with Dusty Miller.


a close up of the Dusty Miller's
beautiful velvety silver leaves.



The lilacs petals began to drop...
 so I removed the baubles,
and enjoyed the look of the petals
 laying on the silver tray.
They looked like they were floating in water :-)

Happy Mothers Day Everyone!!

to my Mom!!

Hi Bella
Lavender and silver....one of my favourite combinations and yours is so pretty.
I've had an insect strip the fuzz off my dusty miller in the past - likely a bee.
I see we have a light dusting of snow on the roofs and cars, very unusual for snow in May here.
Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day.

What gorgeous photos Bella! My late blooming Miss Kims just popped and although I do not have Dusty Miller I do have Lambs Ears and think it will make a bouquet almost as sweet as yours!!
Thank you for the inspiration!!
