And that same
These things are as abundant in my neighborhood in Summer as the azaleas are in Spring. And they're gorgeous! Usually they're dark pink (pictured), light pink, purple, or white. In our own side yard we have a few light pink and white ones. And trust me, if ours were all small and I could reach the blooms, I would cut my own tree. But they aren't - ours are too big. So, um, sometimes, I, um, cut other people's flowers for display in my house.

So I'd like to admit to the world that I've done this a few times lately. Once before I hosted book club at my house, and once before my in laws came over for a birthday dinner. Because flowers from the store are expensive! And the flowering myrtle blooms are so pretty! And it's just soooo easy to go out there and gather flowers instead of driving to the store.
I know, it's bad. But then I started to think about my own trees. If I looked outside and one of my neighbors was snipping from my tree, I don't think I'd be mad. Or if I was mad, I certainly wouldn't have the guts to go out there and say anything.
Do you guys ever have wandering scissors?
