A garden of Zinnias

Northern California got some rain yesterday and the garden loved it! The broody cloud cover just before the rain was an ideal time to admire the zinnia garden and take a few photos. Admiring their vibrant colors and eye-catching display I was reminded of this quote : “So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” Jorge Luis Borges

Fuchsias in Bloom

The flower that inspired a name for a color. The first two images were taken of a plant growing in a pot on a main road in Monterey, California. The third image is from the garden next door. Wherever they grow they provide a vibrant and eye-catching display.

Something Foxy for Mother’s Day – blooms still say it best!

Happy Mother’s Day! Mother’s day is usually brimming with pretty pink things and loads of gorgeous blooms. Lately I’ve heard advertisers pushing the “let’s  give Mom something more long lasting than flowers” line. I love gifts – who doesn’t? What they fail to realize though is that there is infinite joy in the moment of receiving a beautiful bloom – whether it’s in elegant and sophistically wrapped bunches or a posey of wild flowers!

Yes flowers are fragile and have a defined life span but so do we and there is beauty in that too and an opportunity to take a moment to reflect and be grateful for the magnificent way we are constructed and how wonderfully we are made!

Wishing all Moms a fabulously florally Mother’s Day!

Flowers and vases

Every now and then I get asked to produce a floral image with a specific tone or theme. My current project was a request to use green blooms. I decided to opt for green carnations and combined them with some white roses from my garden. This is the result.
