There is no glory in star or blossom till looked upon by a loving eye; There is no fragrance in April breezes till breathed with joy as they wander by.
William Cullen Bryant
Redolence is the way something smells.
dievca always pauses on her way to work to enjoy the redolence of the flowering crabapple trees. The trees are in blossom earlier this year than last.
The word redolence almost always refers to the very best odors and scents.

He saw the first “Snowdrops” of the Season in the Shakespeare Garden, Central Park NYC. They saw these Snowdrops together on the High Line:
dievca spotted the Crocus’ first! On the High Line, in the rain:
The first flowers of Spring always bring a little bit of competition and a lot of Joy.

A lovely gift to bring someone. Male or Female. A very Dutch gift.
Do you bring flowers that you love? Especially if you don’t know what flowers the giftee loves?
Do you try to guess what they might like?
Or would you think about the flower’s meanings? Send a message?
In dievca’s High School, clubs would sell Carnations on Valentine’s Day to raise money for their activities:
A White Carnation meant “Friends”
Red meant “Lovers”
Pink meant “Secret Admirer”
For 50 cents, you would pre-order and send the flowers with a message to the classroom where you knew your “target” was sitting. The pink carnations were quite desirable.
Hmm, fun to remember that~wonder if they still do it.
dievca received three sets of flowers for her Birthday.
Which bouquet of flowers do you think is her?
White rose: purity, innocence, reverence, a new beginning, a fresh start.
Red rose: love, I love you
Deep, dark crimson rose: mourning
Pink roses: grace, happiness, gentleness
Yellow rose: joy, friendship, the promise of a new beginning
Orange rose: desire and enthusiasm
Lavender rose: love at first sight
Coral rose: friendship, modesty, sympathy

Gerber Daisy (Gerbera): Innocence, Purity
Carnation (red): Love, Admiration, Friendship, Pride, Passion
Carnation (yellow): Disappointment, Rejection, Disdain

Yesterday, the Swedish Consulate in NYC hosted a Midsommar Celebration in Battery Park City, downtown Manhattan. dievca biked down after work to see the chaos. According to her friend, it was quite similar to what goes on in Sweden for Midsommar. Singing, dancing, eating, drinking while wearing floral crowns. A celebration of the Earth, topped off with the raising of the phallic Maypole (something about balls and a cock piercing Mother Earth. etc.)
It was too crazy to try to get food, so a bodega further uptown offered simple fair and the Hudson River offered a spectacular view.
Today, dievca is working and then heading out to watch the Germany/Sweden World Cup game. Afterward. dievca is hosting a small cocktail party for her visiting friend.
Have a fabulous, close to Midsommar Saturday. 🥂🥃🍸🍺

Master bought His dievca peonies.
A Midwestern treat in the City.
Don’t have to shake off the ants.
$12.00 per three buds.
dievca’s Mom asked the Home Aid to take and send a photo of the Iris’ in their garden.
Lovely to be thought of.
dievca’s favorite flower.
The sun finally came out at the end of the day, yesterday.
And today is supposed to be nice.
dievca will be taking a nap on the rooftop.
Master can’t make it…
