in bloom

























Seeing as the weather has been lovely this weekend, I went to one of our local nurseries today to pick up some seeds and see what was in bloom. I thought I would share a few photos as there was quite a number of things to shoot~

Have a marvelous week,
xx

Can you believe it??? We had people in Joyworks coming in in their flip flops today! Bikers, cyclists, walkers, sky divers,,,,,you name it! Everyone was out and even if they were only shopping, they all had smiles plastered on their faces!

Lovely day!! Looking forward to getting out there tomorrow myself!!!

Enjoy!

oh dang..i don't know how you do it. honestly it was mainly you who inspired my last post... these photos are terrific. i am ashamed to admit i haven't taken one single spring photo yet. none. it makes me sad. but i just can't do it! i feel so busy and taking photos can consume and entire day so easily..an entire weekend even! you know what i mean i know you do. i stayed in the house all weekend. yep it's true. i am painting my studio a wonderful baby blue mind you..and today i am cleaning carpets. i can't multitask. i wish i could but for now....i need to go and start the carpet cleaning machine. see you soon though...that makes me infinitely happy.

Well, looks like you and lens are in flying form and peak condition to lavish yourselves on unsuspecting France. I shall rush outside and whisper sweet nothings to the rose bushes and primeverts so they are all standing to attention when you both pass by!!
