In this there is no measuring with time, a year doesn’t matter, and ten years are nothing. … not numbering and counting, but ripening like a tree, which doesn’t force its sap, and stands confidently in the storms of spring, not afraid that afterward summer may not come. It does come. But it comes only to those who are patient, who are there as if eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly silent and vast. I learn it every day of my life, learn it with pain I am grateful for: patience is everything!

Rainer Maria Rilke

gather ye rosebuds while ye may

The word “floral” used to make me cringe. It put me in mind of big, frilly bloomers and old lady blouses. But I have to admit they are kind of growing on me. Forals, that is …. not bloomers and blouses.


Like this top from Alternative Apparel, which I love.

After reading Jane’s post and Anabela’s post I’m liking florals even more.

And then Target introduced their Liberty of London line and now I’m a little obsessed. I mean these wee flower earrings are darling… and so are these.

And right now all of Ban.do’s floral headbands are 30% off. I especially love this one

So what about you? How do you feel about florals?
