Spring in southern California is beautiful, long lasting & gently flows into Summer...while most flowers bloom here all year, a few are only in bloom now...the peonies being one & my fave always...have been in full bloom for the last several weeks & are always a treat! I love white flowers all year long, they seem to always compliment the off white painted French country furniture thats always at Rue 27 and the antique gilt I love...This Spring has been busy for us at Rue 27 Maison, several buying trips, a couple of weddings & lots of antique markets...a wonderful time of year...Sharing with you the whites this Spring at Rue 27 Maison...
