Last week we celebrated summer birthdays. There were nine total, both family and friends who had a birthday on either June, July or August.
To make the house more festive I picked up flowers from the market and added palms from my backyard to the arrangements. I used palms as a filler instead of ferns because they look great with just about all types of flowers, they fill up the vase and I have an unlimited supply. I also love white flowers with palms. The fresh and simple look of white is enough to spread cheer.
I had placed the vases of flowers around the house and after a week they still have their bloom. Which leads me to the pictures of my bike. I love photographs that people have taken with a bike's wicker basket overflowing with flowers. Since I own a bike with a wicker basket, and I still have a houseful of flowers I thought I'd try to create my own photo by our garden gate. I'm still working on getting the knack of photo editing, but here is the result of my first effort :)
