She was in love with roses...

Oh, my little readers-- are you sick to death of pictures of roses yet? Please, indulge me one more time (I'd say last, but who am I kidding...) it's like every spring they bloom and it's like I've never seen them before. Nothing like a gray monotonous winter to make you want to photograph every blooming thing you see like you were in love with it.

Everything looked so pretty this morning when I went out to feed the rabbits. That rolling green pasture (there's a creek in the middle of it, though its hard to tell) is where I like to pick a nice breakfast salad for the buns, which sounds romantic, but is filled with nervous thoughts of "please, don't let a spider be in this patch of clover..." ;)

It was just so bright and pretty and bursting with springtime, after all these days of gray storminess, that I had to snap a few shots.

Well, today I have a little one home with a stuffy head from allergies. Probably wont get much painting done, but I'll try to sneak a little time. That's how I used to do all this when she was home with me, now I've been spoiled by long blissful school days! Hope your week has started well, and that you get a little treat at some point in the day.

I just got the new Kate Morton book at the store too. Obsessed? Of course! She makes me want to paint gardens, perhaps I'll take a break from my diligent Christmas work and snatch a moment to paint some flowers....

  1. Thanks for the head's up on Kate Morton. I had never heard of her but took this opportunity to check out her books on Amazon and they sound like just what I was looking for to read this summer!!!
    Oh and how can anyone have to many roses? I love to look at them and grow them and use them in crafts!
    Have a good day with the poor little one with the sniffles.

  7. I've been obsessing over my roses too! This is the first year I actually cut them way back and they look so much better. I got this amazing yellow & pink tea rose that I wish I could take with me when we move. :(

  8. Hi Heather! I really like Kate Morton too, I have read all her books! There is another book I think you would enjoy, it´s called The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman. And Tasha Tudor- yes isn´t she an inspiration! Her life is almost an artwork in itself. I have ordered a book on her that I can´t wait to get in my hands. It´s called The Private World of Tsha Tudor.

  10. Roses are indeed so lovely. I can never tire of looking at pretty flowers. Everything is in bloom in the yard now...even our Forget-Me-Knots - and we didn't think they were perennials. I even saw a butterfly today!
