After a long and difficult winter, we now have had the wettest April in 139 years! I wish we could share some of the rain with our friends in Texas! Day after day of rain and gloomy weather makes me want to look at pretty things.
Usually I am hesitant to cut so many of my spring flowers to bring inside, but with the rain, high winds, and the occasional threat of hail, I knew they wouldn't last very long outside. I have thoroughly enjoyed the tulip and daffodil bouquets in the house!
I am still trying to learn more about photography and my camera. It seems that there is always more to learn. During these past few gloomy days, I've been experimenting with indoor photography, (with no natural sunlight). The bouquets of flowers make the perfect models!
Speaking of purr-fect models, here is my sweet kitty enjoying our cozy spot. Cats always make things look even cozier!
More beautiful tulips!
I thought I would include a shot of the night stand I bought at a garage sale last year and painted turquoise.
I don't usually follow color trends, but I am loving all things turquoise, especially the robin's eggs and my sweet collection of blue Ball jars. (The peony picture is from last year. I can't wait to have them again!)
