Summer Vibrance






Hi everyone! Here is a variety of photos for you! The first is a picture of the table setting for our family's Memorial Day barbecue dinner. Coincidentally, the floral motif on the plate looks like one of the flowers I planted in my garden last week (pictured in the second photo as digital art). I took the other photos at a local park ~ a beautiful bird bath in an iris garden, and two macros of peonies in bloom.  Enjoy! xo

Spring Watercolors








Hi everyone! Today I had fun with a new app and I created watercolor-like images. These are pictures I took in my yard and at a local park: a dogwood tree in bloom, a container garden with daisies and geraniums, and a colorful variety of hibiscus and azelias. Enjoy and Happy Memorial Day weekend to those in the USA! xo

A Walk in the Park





Hi everyone, I hope you're enjoying the change in seasons, wherever you are. It's been raining nonstop here. This was the calm before the storm as I went for a walk in a local park today. The sky was cloudy but this beautiful park was bursting with colors. The azaleas were gorgeous. The park also has a conservatory, featuring a rainforest full of pretty blooms (see the collage for hibiscus in a variety of colors). What a great stroll, and I made it home before it started raining again. Enjoy! xo

Spring is here!






After a very long winter, we are finally seeing signs of Spring! The forsythia is in bloom in my yard. I love the way the bright yellow blooms are in contrast with the still bare trees. The sky is beautifully blue at a nearby lake and the trees are budding there. Finally, I wanted to share photos of our family's golden retriever, so happy outdoors in the sun. And our adorable kitten is now 10 months old, nice and cozy lying on a little blanket I crocheted for her. Hope you enjoy these cheerful photos! xo

A Splash of Color




It's amazing how some jelly beans, chocolates, and colored eggs can bring a splash of color into an otherwise still white Spring. Yes, it's about to snow on Easter day, but we made the best of it, spending it with family. Hope the Holy Week brought you peace, love, and serenity. xo
