All my life I have tried to pluck a thistle and plant a flower wherever the flower would grow in thought and mind. Abraham Lincoln
As more and more flowers come to life around me I can't help but be inspired by their grace, perfume and beauty. This is an impression of a viburnum and lilac co-existing on a foggy spring morning just doing what they do with no need for gilding. Many of the tiny buds have yet to bloom but if you cut these types of flowers on woody branches they droop SO fast.
