hanging on

it's getting to be that time of year already when flowers begin to fade off.  there are some varieties, though, that only blossom in the spring with the bushes green and hardy for the rest of the summer.  one of those is the bridal wreath.  this is a lovely bush that has a delicate white flower.  when it blossoms, it doesn't last long.  in fact if a strong wind happens to blow, it can sometimes be enough to blow all the petals off the bush at once leaving me sad...  for it is one of my very favorite spring time flowers.

imagine my pleasant surprise, then, as i was walking around the house today and saw this lone small cluster hanging on the bridal wreath.  i have no idea how it has survived the whole summer....through rain, wind, hail, heat...  but there it was for my pure enjoyment - and now yours...


perhaps the other leaves and branches have protected it just for this moment.  yay!  it's a simple moment i'm soaking up...

happy day.....
