evening flowers

Friday, May 16, 2014

Tuesday, when the sun was going down, I stepped outside for an evening walk. I'm trying to make these walks a little tradition (You can follow along on instagram with the hashtag #bvceveningwalk) because they make me feel more grounded, and happier, and documenting things for me is a motivation to do them. Sort of ironic. But there you have it. 

So. I stepped outside and wandered around the neighborhood. It was a hot day, so the evening air was warm and languid, the exact same temperature as my skin. I grabbed some flowers along the way, rose and dying lilacs. When I got home I sat on our tiny porch and cut them, trimmed the leaves off and arranged them quickly in a jar. 

I put them in the bedroom. Don't they just seem like bedtime flowers? Steele put the fan in our window and it blew that fragrance–even richer as the flowers die–right into the room.
