"Where better to care for the soul than in the details of our daily lives?....The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought... An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination where we find value, love and union with the world around us. As mystics of many religions have taught, that sense of rapturous union can give a sense of fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant." ~ Thomas Moore.

Only Flowers Today

I went shopping today to my favorite little Italian Market Doris's. I bought flowers and lots of greens!
I also cut some of the variegated hibiscus that is outside, its sooooo beautiful! even inside.
In the cloche I have lots of orange hibiscus. They only last a day, but look lovely in the cloche.

On top of the apothecary chest, some cut giant begonia flowers......housemate said they look like giant baby's breath :D

On the little French cabinet......roses.....

In the middle room, in front of the window I have a printer, I have to always have something lovely on it. These are the cut variegated hibiscus with begonia flowers in pink.



In the hall.....a sweet peony arrangement........not real. .....but lovely all the time! :D

On the coffee table......roses and candlelite......

In the ''new Bohemian White Bathroom''......never made a post yet because I'm not thrilled with it, but I think with clever photography it could look fantastic LOL,,,,,but I'm not that clever one, alas.


 I do love this wall though!

On the sink..........

In my bedroom, the white lilies are fading out

and I added some giant begonia frilly and lacey!

In the living room some fresh white lilies opening with the older ones.....never want to be without these again!

They give off their scent when I need it most at night as I lay on the sofa. Even housemate can smell them.
Thats my soft really warming blanket folded there for when it is a bit chilly, being under it are some of the most wonderful moments!

One of my cattleya orchids snapped off....

.into my hair it went!

Tea tyme..... thanks for being here.
