I started with the vase: it’s one of my own designs from many years ago done for Hausenware.
Next, I gathered some daffodils from various parts of my garden. Some of the daffs have long since faded and withered, but others are just coming out. Most of these were actually planted long before we moved here so it’s a wonderful bonus to see them each spring (and not really know just what I ‘m going to see.)

Then, once again, those wonderful hellebore foetidus.

And finally, some rosemary which has just begun to flower (can you see those tiny bits of blue?).



I had a few minutes this evening to play with some filters. This one, below, is
Kim Klassen’s Sunkist, at 76% opacity.


For a totally different look, I tried the Waterlogue effect:


The viburnum carlesii will be blooming very soon! I had these shrubs up North and just love them. Oh, the scent…it is part vanilla and part spice and is one of the finest plants around.


 I’m entertaining thirty at my Saturday morning , monthly, women’s group so I’ll be picking some more flowers for that. And, of course, baking lots of goodies.
We’re off to a brand new destination on Monday; I hope to show you images and places and who knows what from there!
