A Welcome Back

The scent of jasmine the moment we opened the front door was our welcome back last eve. The warm weather while we were away was indeed happily received by everyone in Seattle, as well as apparently the jasmine. Oh my. It is crazy how much it grew in two weeks. I really wish this photo was a ‘scratch & sniff’ so you could all enjoy the sweet beauty of the scent. I snapped this photo early this morning right after a quick walk with Bailey. I just had to add a single peony bloom for the shot. We hand carried a good sized bundle from Hawthorne as I just could not bear to miss so many of them blooming after we left. So, by golly, these little puppies are well-travelled and will be enjoyed mightily in the coming days.



And As If On Cue…

Just in time for Easter supper, the jasmine that crept through a small crack from an open window last year has begun to bloom. The scent wafting about ready to greet guests. If you celebrate Easter, please have a beautiful one. For those of you who do not, have a lovely, lovely Sunday.  X, T



Magical Climbing & Dancing Jasmine

It began many, many months ago when the tiniest bit of vine came through the slightest little opening in the window and attached & wound itself to the shutter inside.  Then the magic continued.  It has been an absolute joy to watch the dance this vine, now two, has done.  When we arrived back to Seattle late Monday eve, we were treated to an even further show as it has begun to move to the middle shutters.  It is crazy how much it grew the 2 weeks we were in New York.  The slightest scent filling the living room, which is just heavenly.  Thought the magical dancing jasmine could be the Flower Friday bloom of the week as we are just charmed by it.
