Stop and Smell the Flowers

As exciting as they are, the constant drugstore releases have been overwhelming (I should just stop stalking drugstores like a maniac...ahem) for me and all those snapping-resizing-watermarking-posting can make blogging a chore...

So, in order to enjoy the last bit of spring (actually summer is already here, according to my armful of mosquito bites), I am taking a mini-break from all the spying and product reviewing (just this weekend, since I do have quite a few images clogging up my camera and dashboard) and here are some pictures flowers I snapped to keep you guys temporarily entertained.
Gardenia (how I love thee!) in front of an ancient-looking (can't get that old since it's Texan) church 
Beautiful shape (symmetry), fresh smell and luscious (thick) petals that looks like shaved frozen cream...
 
Rose is another of my favorites - While I am not really crazy about the real thing, I love to see rose pattern on illustration, fabrics (as if I don't have enough floral clothing already) and print...

I would totally like a sundress with small roses print on it - preferably with pastel teal or avocado green background.
Mom in Japan (circa early 1990s) - This is the only sakura picture I have (scan with a camera) - Ahhh, I so want to photograph the real thing!

    1. Haha, I will let her know...I do have quite a few unflattering pictures I took (focusing on her butt) but she said she will disown me if I put them online.

  2. a few things: have a good break:), your mom looks lovely, i feel the same about roses i dun love the real thing i like them in perfumes mostly (and on anna sui packagings!), and the gardenias are amazing (I have never seen the real thing prior to this). It looks really creamy and tasty lol.

    by the way speaking of flowers, here's my favorite florist in the whole wide world if you havent already read about her. Her eye for colors and textures is impeccable! http://emersonmerrick.blogspot.com/

    1. Then you have to give it a sniff sometime, the main reason I like it is because of the smell, super fresh and elegant and never cloying.

  3. When I was a TEENSY TEENSY EA my family hung gardenias over my bassinet. I still love the scent, I like lighter rose scents, Sakura, Star Jasmine...most of these smell pretty similar now that I think about it. Haha.

    1. Star jasmine...that's what it's called. I saw a wall of those in the same church but I didn't post any picture because I didn't know the name.
