The world is blooming


If you’ve never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.
- Terri Guillemets

I've been juggling photography trips to the ornamental gardens and trails (each visit reveals something new growing), with working in my own garden. There is just so much happening with the flora and fauna these days. Even though we've had a lot of rain and overcast days, I must admit I do not mind them at all. I love an overcast day for photographing (the light is so much softer), and light rain can be quite refreshing when working in the garden. And really, I can't complain about the weather here when so many are suffering from such devastating floods, wildfires and tornadoes in Canada and the US. The weather has certainly been rough for many this season.


  1. What a great combination of colours! The cropping is wonderful and love the sharp sharp center and the soft edges. Well done!

  2. I love that quote -- it's a perfect match for the exquisite edges in those photos.

  3. I've always loved that quote and have used it several times for my own flower photographs. I don't mind overcast days either, and am always cheered when the sun finally comes out. Have a beautiful weekend.

  4. Thanks Scott, Andi and Kate.

    Kate -- I think the sun needs to come out soon before the all the new plants think it's Fall and decide to go back to sleep. ;-)
