I love Spring. Summer is definitely my favorite season, but the colours and smells of Spring are a welcome joy after months of dark, cold winter weather.
This week, our house has been bursting with flowers. Something I find elevates my mood incredibly; probably a worthwhile investment as glancing at a vase of flowers is healthier than caffeine and more efficient than napping.
Look at that lily: so lovely. The fragrance was intoxicating, so I carried it into my bedroom hoping it would waft into my dreams. Until I realized I, like my father, have a lily serious allergy. Sneezing and stuffy, I have sequestered the pot of lilies to the balcony. Hopefully Varun will be able to deliver them to a friend as they are gorgeous and blooming and I’d hate to seem them unappreciated. In other news, strawberry smoothies are back. Smoothies are a breakfast favourite in this household and the months of fresh fruit means lots of frozen, yogurty goodness.
