love thursday: flowering suprises

During my first date with P, he disappeared for a few minutes while snipping a miniature rose off of a nearby bush. Keeping his reputation safe as village flower thief, the other day when he took the chicken photos, he also showed up with something else for me--our first mandorla blossom this season. This wasn't technically thieving, though, as the tree is ours.

FYI, usually February brings these dainty flowers, but I suppose the temperate weather has fooled them.

lovely flower/s. But what i like best is how you balanced the vase on that skinny skinny rail to take the photos. For sure if i'd done that some wind would have come along.... vanessa

Beautiful flower - beautiful view. Is that the view from your window? I love it!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I assure you, it's not super interesting ;) It's like a year's worth of complaining before I decided to 'stop complaining' six months ago.
Your life in Italy looks magical.

Beautiful flowers :-) But omg that view in the background is breathtaking!!! One of the many reasons I want to live in Italy! Hehe :-D Btw, I'm doing that "Letter game" today, I haven't forgotten, it was just hard to think of 10 things beginning with 'R'.

The second one took my breath away. I love flowers and the shot is stunning.

Happy Love Thursday!

I'm suffering with acute jealousy for the following three reasons:

1/ you're living in Italy
2/ with a stunning view like that
3/ and a man who brings you flowers

You've got it sussed.

Really beautiful pictures--view, composition, execution, plus the memory of a husband who's romantic enough to bring you flowers. You're very lucky! Happy Love Thursday!
