Violet Color Palette

I just loved the close up on this hyacinth bloom. I was able to capture this glorious moment on a windy day and am so grateful. I loved how it draws you in and shows you all the lovely details one blossom offers on a stalk of hundreds. Mother Nature knew what she was doing when she was playing around with these plans. I was totally in awe of the various hues displayed and thought a color palette would be an interesting way to see all involved and the range for which it encompasses. From the pale lavender to the deepest blue violet, just beautiful!

Mood Board - Springtime

 Springtime is here and our yard is full of white blooms on the star magnolia trees, the hyacinths, our fruit trees, it is simple beautiful. So to keep in the fashion of our wonderful yard, I have gathered items of white that show off the season for me. The deep fabric background with all the dreamy hues of coral, robins egg blue and fawn really helps accentuate all the wonderful light elements. Of course, springtime wouldn't be complete without a nest so I had to put it in as a dark accent. I love the way the composition turned out, hope you are inspired to create your own springtime mood board!

Aqua Delight!

Now I am really over the moon delighted, 4 beautiful eggs are in this little nest. Who knew, this is the first time I have seen a nest with more than 3 eggs in it. The momma must like what our garden filled yard has to offer because she will have a lot of little mouths to feed and bellies to fill. Now I am so excited I am about to bust. I can't wait to see their little heads popping out over the nest. Me craning my best to get a good photography while momma looks on making sure no harm comes their way. Oh, I can't wait to share, I will definitely keep you posted!

Aqua Eggs

I peeked, I couldn't help myself and to my delight, there were two little aqua eggs tucked within the nest in our holly bush. I was so excited to see these little orbs of life and know that soon, there will be little bitty robins chirping for their mother to take care of them minute by minute every day for a while. It brings me great joy knowing they are right outside the window and I can check on their progress daily if I like. Ahh, the beauty of the seasons is just miraculous when you really think about it!

Rustic Happiness

This little group of crocus just made me smile. The sunlight was enveloping them making their petals open wide to take in all the warmth being offered today. Their yellow orange stamen smiling from inside just adding the right amount of color to make it such a happy scene. Combined with the natural elements of leaves, bark and their greenery surrounded them with a rustic attitude that thrilled me beyond belief. I do hope their little magical brings a smile to your face today!
