Today is a beautiful, warm, sunny day in June and I am free to play. So I’m playing around in my garden and kitchen. I felt like shaking things up a bit so I swiped an antique table from my ‘office’ and put it beside my antique cabinet in the kitchen. But, it needed something. Some flowers. A trip to my garden yielded these two allium that have been returning year after year. I love them so much I don’t know why I haven’t planted a whole new crop (note to self, plant allium this autumn). Then I decided they would look perfect in my new (old) glass bottle that I found at my local antique/garage-sale store.
It’s a Florida Druggists Water Bottle from Murray and Lanman.
For jangled nerves produced by excitement or shock, Murray and Lanman’s Florida Water applied to the forehead and used as a rubdown, usually relieves nervous tension and relaxes the muscles’.
I love it!

I’ve never seen allium before (onion family I presume). They are a stunning flower and look perfect in your first photo.

Your photos have the same effect on me as the Murray and Lanman’s Florida Water. Makes me feel sooooo relaxed.
Perfect white balance and composition, Barb. Just beautiful!
