|Our pretty little tête-à-têtes|
The light is different, too. It is softer and more golden.
Spring is in the air.
Several weeks ago, when the ground was still frozen and the light was cold and steely gray, we bought a pot of tête-à-têtes to enjoy at Darlington House, as a harbinger of spring. This past weekend the diminutive flowers were at their loveliest, and their fragrance sweet and delicate. We were so taken by them that we have ordered eleven more pots of them in different sizes to have massed on our dining table during a party we're throwing later this month. It should be lovely.
Just as Reggie likes to (mostly) hibernate during the depths of winter, keeping close to hearth and home, so does he like to spread his wings when spring arrives, and begin to socialize again. In fact, he's itching to get out there.
How about you?
