HAGS: Have A Great Summer!

It’s a stunningly beautiful morning in Northern California today. As my children excitedly anticipate the start of the summer break the mood is jovial and we pay attention to little details on the school run. We spotted a swallowtail butterfly fluttering between the emerging white agapanthus and its wings were catching the morning sunlight. There is so much we can be thankful for and these small moments remind me about the joy to be found in living.

Reading my children’s yearbooks and seeing all the good wishes made me want to share them too – so HAGS to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere and HUGS to everyone in the South!

Chasing Fall

Went out to the park searching for autumnal shades. There was not much variety however as I think the scorching heat moves the foliage from dead to crisp rather quickly. The leaves seem to simply whither and fall. So I guess this is Fall in full throttle.

Red Anthuriums

Bought these red Anthuriums in a little pot. They have such a simple yet elegant shape. A woman behind me at the checkout told me that it was the only flower her father could ever recall the name of because he liked them so much. As a result when he died they had a red and white Athurium design printed on a blanket to drape over his casket. Flowers can touch us in so many ways…

Yay I now have an artist page!

I am so grateful to have the space to pursue something I love and now I have taken the plunge to see whether it can make me an income as well by launching an artist website today. Taking photographs of flowers is my passion. It energizes and invigorates me like nothing else. It fuels my soul and focuses my chi.

The photo above is my latest upload on to the site. The one below of the white Agapanthus is my first sale!

If you are feeling so inclined I would really appreciate some comments on the images I uploaded on the site.

My photos appear to be popular as floral greeting cards so I am planning to print some batches as well. I still have so much to learn but I am thoroughly enjoying the journey! 

Thanks for your support!
