Weekend Reflections

Now that lilacs are in bloom

She has a bowl of lilacs in her room
And twists one in her fingers while she talks.
"Ah, my friend, you do not know, you do not know
What life is, you who hold it in your hands."

—T.S. Eliot, Prufrock and Other Observations

  1. Yet with this April sunshine, that somehow recalls
    My buried life, and Paris in the Spring,
    I feel immeasurably at peace, and find the world
    To be wonderful and youthful, after all

    1. And I never saw the connection!

  2. Very touching and beautiful flowers for sure. Flowers are so healing .

  3. So perfect for this time of year! Love the multiple reflections...and the endearing quote!

  4. Gorgeous, dear Alexa ~ and that's a beautiful mirror, too. I've only experienced lilacs 'in person' a handful of times at the most ~ but remember them as delicate and exceptionally lovely.

  5. lovely reflection and the blue glass bottle is amazing!!

  6. cobalt blue is my very favorite color, and paired with one of my favorite bushes- love, love, love it!

  7. Lovely reflections
