Things That Are Inspiring Me

i had such a wonderful time at artfest and can’t wait to share photos and stories with you soon. 

but first, i just had to give you a sneak peek at my garden. it seems all of the spring flowers have bloomed… just waiting for me when i got home! 

i just can’t even say how much i adore flowers. when i was around six, i was the flower girl in my aunt’s wedding and wore this long, frilly, pink dress. the name flower girl has stuck with me ever since…and the two jobs i ever really loved most (aside from my life as an artist now) were working in a chicago flower shop and tending to plants and trees as a landscaper. 

so whenever spring comes, i just can’t stop snapping photos of all of the AMAZING color!


  1. Your world is coming ALIVE beautifully. Know wonder your ART is so colourful…Happy Easter and Spring Blessings…♥Debi

  2. Love the photo of the magnolia tree. Seeing one of the trees in full bloom is nothing short of amazing.

  3. I agree with you. I often tell people to check out my photography link on my blog flowers are my most favorite thing to photograph, they pose perfect, their confident and not insecure about their hair or their clothes they don't blink and they stay still unless the wind is blowing and that can add to the coolness of a photo. I do love cherry blossoms and magnolia trees the best thanks for sharing very pretty!

  4. So much beauty in your garden already. I'm a little further north and it's happening but slowly…spring is my favourite time of year to be out in the garden snapping away as life begins the renewal process. Lovely photos!
