i hope my neighbors don't read this.
i didn't want to write about this today, but i need to confess, for i have sinned: the most beautiful trees in our neighborhood are now in full bloom, and when i walk by a neighbor's tree with flowers that look and smell heavenly, i snip the flowers right off the tree, take them home and arrange them in a vase. as if i'd just bought them at trader joe's. (i'm a thief!) usually the flowers i take are daisies, which count as weeds (right?), and no one wants weeds in their yard. when i take daisies, i tell myself i'm doing my neighbor a favor. weeding for free! i'm practically a saint.
today, though, i feel a bit guilty. i saw these gorgeous purple flowers that smelled so good i just had to have them. (what are these called again?) the tree wasn't in a yard; it was in the grass that lined the sidewalk, just beyond the homeowner's fence. part of the tree hung over the fence, but i honestly don't know if anyone owns this tree. (or was it a bush?) before i made the first snip, i asked evie what she thought. she said, "fwuh-bees." (translation: flowers.) she wanted flowers. and so flowers she would have.
