a bouquet from the garden

May 24, 2011

I gathered a few of my favorite blooms from the garden to share with you today.

Roses, daisies, scabiosa and salvia to name a few.

I’ve placed them on our latest old house discovery.  Beautiful oak hardwood floors.

When we purchased this house with its white wall to wall carpeting a few years ago, we had no idea that there was such a treasure lurking in the stairway and the two bedrooms upstairs.

Some of my husband’s favorite childhood memories are of running up and down the old, creaky stairs on his grandmother’s farm.  How wonderful to be able to pass those same memories to our grandkids.

It’s going to be a slow process but with just the first two steps and the landing uncovered, I know it will be worth the wait.

I'm linking up with Kim for Wow us Wednesday.
and A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
