Saturday Morning at Yppen Square
Stories of Flowers and Fragrance

Red-Laced White Narcissus
looking down on white and magenta tulips
and burgundy peony buds

Granny's Preserving Pan
holding armfuls
of white lilac

Yellow and Orange Tulips
holding forth,
defiantly, no matter
they are late to the party

Take Me Home
the price is right!

And there the lilacs go,
their fragrance wafting
by the cheeses
who could not care less
about flowery perfumes:
"You wait a year,
then we'll see who

  1. Hi Merisi, it looks like Spring is in full bloom in Vienna. So many beautiful colors, and I can almost smell the lilacs. The cheese looks rather tasty too. Thank you for making your photos clickable....I always long to see the details close up!

  2. We love your stories with flowers and Farmers Market in the morning!
    Have a nice day ;)

  3. love the lilacs... beautiful :)

  4. Fabulous spring flowers, but yummmmm ... it's the cheeses I wouldn't be able to resist :))

  5. Dear Merisi, Especially like your first photograph showing the Pheasant Eye Narcissus...mine will bloom next week.

  6. Every one of these blooms is a beauty...peony time is a favorite of mine.

    (I've got a photo of tulips on a certain Avenue for you to see...I almost missed them this year.)


  7. So pretty! Perfect for the dreary day we're having in NY.

  8. How did I miss these?
    Perfection in a bucket!

  9. My favourite flowers, May is the best month in the whole year!

  10. It appears as if you've captured beauty quite well.

    Simply unable to create something new today.
    I hope you enjoy this look back to a bright day.

    Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

  12. "Sir (Madam) please I want some more".
    Have a lovely weekend, Merisi and thank you for the spam tips.

  13. Those delightful photos of incredibly beautiful flowers makes me want to run right out and buy some blooms for the house.

  14. This makes me want to run out and shoot flowers...but where are they?
