Snowball fight...

The limbs of my snowball bush are fighting to hold up these favorite blooms of mine. I have loved these since I was little. When they bloomed last year during our first Spring on the little farm, I was so delighted.

I wish I could send each of you a huge bouquet in some wonderful vintage vase- or even an old mason jar. Close your eyes and pretend I did.

What a gorgeous bush and beautiful blooms this year...probably from all the rain!

I bet it smells incredible.

Thanks for my virtual floral bouquet and I love the vase.

Those are BEAUTIFUL!! I can't imagine how thrilled you must have been when you saw them for the first time!!!

I have an old blue mason jar that I'm imagining holding those fabulous flowers...on my table!

Ah! Snowballs! My brother and I used to have snowball fights with these flowers at my grandparents' house. The lawn would end up sprinkled with white petals. What fun memories. And I have to say, your blog made me smile for another reason this morning. My grandmother's twin sister's name was Della Bella. I guess I was destined to land here. :)

I know! I am loving this springtime immensely. I've got peonies and iris and bachelor's button starting to bloom. It seems like just yesterday I was complaining about the endless cold winter on my blog :)

I love your snowball bush! Both my Grandmas had them in their yards. It's on my list of things to plant in our backyard someday.

I so will pretend! I don't have that plant and I am so jealous! It is beautiful and feminine and so lush. I just put my pretend vase of pretend flowers from you on the table. And Bonnie the cat is eating the flowers, as usual...
