My lilac tree has bloomed. I know that purple is not your favourite colour but for me, in nature, it doesn't get much more beautiful than a lilac tree. That pale purple and their smell is just enchanting. I have lilac's all over the house currently. On the kitchen and dining room table and in my bedroom. I love flowers in the bedroom and have them in there all summer long since I just pick whatever is in season.
This weekend our deck was sanded, so I no longer have to avert my eyes from it's peeling horror, we have a few herbs and planters happening and I plan to get a whole lot more on Thursday. I can't wait for impromptu summer bbq's and all that goes along with that. This also means that I'll probably be drinking a lot more wine which is good and bad. I've had a policy since Isla that I only have a glass or two on the weekends, unless out somewhere ,and I have a feeling that's about to go out the window. It's so difficult to be strict with anything food/drink related. Someone's always inviting you over to their house or the opposite or to a patio. Then I try and say I will order a salad and water and then suddenly before me lies a glass of wine and something carby. It's also that time to switch up my closets to summer clothes. I already changed my bedding and drapes in my room to reflect the season. Oh summer, please don't leave too quickly.
