Today’s bouquet

I don’t know why my camera insists on recording this wall as teal when it is really sour-apple green.

I can’t bring myself to cut blossoming branches off of my apple or peach trees and the quince isn’t blooming yet, so right now I have to content myself with greenery if I want a homegrown bouquet.  But this English Laurel is budded up and should open soon.  It’s a fragrance I like — kind of honeyish — but too cloying for some.

Like my new vase?  It was a thrift store score a few weeks ago for $1.99.  It’s Oneida and it’s the same not-white-but-not-off-white as my dishes.
