365 Days of Earrings

Luxuriant green

Lilac blossoms have burst into bloom from their weekend buds, peeking out from among the luxuriant greenery that surrounds them. I saw them last night, and knew that I wanted to wear these earrings today.

They were a gift long ago from my husband who admired the craftsmanship. The detailed veins and serrations appear on both sides, likes those on real leaves.

I once again waited until dusk to take my photo, losing the optimal afternoon light.

The camera flash exposes the beauty of the leaves, but dulls that of the blossoms.

In another month, sun will linger into the evening for these photo-shoots!
