Friday Flowers

I wrote an exam this morning that wiped me out for the rest of the day. For me, writing three essays in 3 1/2 hours in French is a WHOLE lot more difficult than writing them in English. But I did it. I got into the car to come home and could just feel everything start to relax - even my tear ducts. I shed a few tears of pure relief.

One more exam to go before I take a little break. That will be next Friday. Then I'll really relax. Meanwhile, I wandered around our yard with the camera before dinner, admiring all the little beauties of spring. Chives that are ready to burst into flower - I like sprinkling the flower petals on salads, too. They are a little more piquant than the stems.

And the lilacs. Oh my, what a heavenly fragrance they have. I had some in the house last week and they scented the living room beautifully.

And this is a plant I don't know the name of - it's very hardy, native to this area, I think. I like it because of its blue flowers and elegant architecture.

Dinner tonight is a grilled shrimp, watermelon and feta salad. In just a few minutes. I can't wait.

I love chive flowers, too! I just had to pop in and tell you than those blue flowers are Cornflower, or Centaurea. I love them too, around here they're nice and vigorous.

Okay, I came to tell you I have one of those plants waiting patiently to go in the ground, and the tag on it calls it 'Mountain Bluet' Guess Kristina beat me to the punch, but as to who is right is anybody's guess! Congrats on finishing the essays! Becky G.

Oh the relief, I can almost feel it with you!

Your dinner sounds yum! I'm intrigued by your watermelon and feta salad. Any hints on how to make one? Just put the two ingredients together?

Wow, those essays sound draining. I'm bilingual, but cannot imagine having to write those papers in my second language. Going out in the gardens after that is refreshing and soothing to the soul after all the studies. Your photos are lovely!
