Using that same upside down flower idea, I made a birthday card.
"Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum.
You came along and everything started to hum.
Still, it's a real good bet, the best is yet to come."

I just love how the top 2 leaves make a natural collar
The hydrangeas are blooming with a vengeance
the shrub of many stalks is about to take over the garden
moving in for the attack
I love the green blossoms
even greener prior to blooming
glorious spring green, the colour we are trimming our house in
here's a hint of it around the basement window (more pictures to come)
This is where I sit in late afternoon to read a book. I've got 4 on the go right now.
across the little deck I have this rescued chair with its visiting potted flowers for company
I was surprised to find the miniature wild roses blooming.
I found them by following their saturated rosy scent.
on the screen a startling red visitor
a mixed media spread I started last night, not quite finished
a detail of the queen
are you stopping to smell the roses?
