We had such a blooming good time on our trip last spring to Madrid, London and Paris that I decided to create a bouquet of memories today:
High above us on the side streets of Madrid, flowers cascaded over the railings of even the narrowest of balconies.
Parks were tapestries scattered throughout Madrid; their designs created by endless beds of red roses.
It felt as if we were staying in London’s Chelsea Flower Show each time we entered our Chancery Court Hotel. The pungent peonies filled the lobby with a springtime aromatherapy. (As well as providing inspiration: “Why it’s simply flower stems and candles mixed. . .why couldn’t I do that at home?”)
It seemed all of London was in bloom – even the bench in the hotel’s courtyard.
A cold, blustery wind swirled street dust during our too-brief overnight stay in Paris. Despite the harsh chill that cut through our coats, balcony blooms reminded us that it really was springtime in Paris.
When someone asks, “But, . . .is there anything to see there?” these are the images that come to mind. What every day images are in your bouquet of memories?
