Edited to add: Mystery solved! When I mentioned it to DH, he remembered
putting a different flower in the vase since the lily of the valley was past it's prime.
We have wood hyacinths in the yard and I didn't realize they were still blooming
and that he had brought a blossom in.
I can't believe the month is over already!
I barely got my flower of the month done.
This time I chose to stamp on a piece of textured Crumb Cake cardstock
and color with Prismacolor pencils.
I stamped in the middle of the piece with Crumb Cake ink,
then masked that flower and stamped another on each side.
I used Terpenoid with a cosmetic swab (the kind with a pointed end)
to blend the coloring.
We have a flower bed that has lily of the valley growing in it.
Our flowers bloomed in April this year.
I picked a small bouquet that scented the whole house.
Some of the blooms opened in an unusual way, at least to me.
See those at the top of the bouquet?
Instead of little bells that turned brown, some of the flowers opened
up like other lilies.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
