I don't know about you, but I am so glad to see the world greening up and blooming. I can't help but think of artist and avid gardener Tasha Tudor when I'm getting inspired to plant or when I see my flowers waking up and budding out.
This is the time of year that was meant to be painted. It's delicate but sumptuous. It's bright but not overwhelming. It's a time packed full of new beginnings--- from wedding season to new babies appearing in the fields around us. Spring is a good time to start hatching new plans.
You know, of course, that I am very fond of plan-hatching! Ha!
And I can't help but be inspired to paint flowers as the flowers burst open around me. Some of my spring favorites are roses, hydrangea, foxglove, blue salvia and honestly--- any bright and bloomy thing. I just can't resist it. I think Tasha Tudor would have agreed!
What are some of your favorite spring blooming flowers? Are there any that just speak to you--- any that you remember fondly from a granny's garden, or a plant that tells you that nice weather is coming by its appearance?
I think New England is in its early blooming season, but it seems to be green from what I've seen from my instagram and blogging friends! I am so happy for you, because I know its been a long cold winter! And I'm happy that in a little over a month, I'll be there to enjoy the beauty of that place too!~
Aside from flowers, do you have any go-to books that you love to read or reread during the spring? I always think of The Secret Garden when I think of spring. It also seems like a good time to watch Larkrise to Candleford (but when is it ever NOT a good time to watch it? lol!)
Anyhow...thank you for coming by today! Hope you're having a beautiful and blossom-filled spring! I'm so glad you stopped by!~
