garden : spring flowers

Spring Flowers
band : freelance whales : mellow and nice.

hello, hello! i love spring. it's my favorite season and always amazes me when beautiful blooms emerge from the frozen tundra, ok, soil. we've had an incredible amount of rain lately and i'm grateful there has been no flooding in our neighborhood. the reports on the news are terrible and we have a lot of empathy for those who have been submerged in water.

these blooms are from the new york botanical garden and wave hill and i'll have more orchids and greenhouse flowers next week. i hope you have a lovely weekend and happy easter to those who celebrate. scott's cousin and wife are driving in from nebraska, so we'll have some new faces at the table this holiday.

xo, cindy

ps scott says thanks for the nice words about his view of nyc. he's a very good scout and guy. we get along pretty well most of the time, but are not sickening like the couple in the movie best in show. swear ;).

Happy spring Cindy! I bet you are so delighted to see flowers start popping up more and more (and in more places than just the Botanical Gardens too). It certainly seemed to be a harsh winter for so many of you in the east and in the midwest :(

Your photo pairs are so lovely, but I must say, your first set - the pink blossoms - are simply STUNNING! I could barely take my eyes off of them! And the pink against that turquoise sky as well... just heaven!

Have a beautiful Easter my friend! xoxo

All beautiful shots of spring, but my favorite is that first diptic (sic)!

If you have Charlie to dinner, would you give him two hugs, 1 for me? I miss Scotty so much, it would be nice to know someone else is getting part of that love. ;)

Happy Easter! Have a glorious weekend!!!

Love the top pictures! It reminds me of a project I once saw in marie claire Idees. It was an embroidery project with those blossoms on a sky blue scarf.
Happy Easter to you and Scott.
