Flowery Details

I love this time of year.
Days are more laid back feeling, windows open to catch any breeze, top of the dutch door open too.
Kitties come and go from the sun drenched patio to the coolness of the family room tile floor and then back out for sun again.

And the flowers are blooming.
I haven't gotten to garden too much this year so I am just enjoying what Mother Nature decides to send my way.  Earlier it was a plethora of lilacs.
Then the roses began to bloom (and still are) followed by the hydrangeas.
Here are a few corners of the house where I put a fresh cut flowers early this morning when I got up before anyone else.

Mini Me thinks the vases are personal watering holes
