I am often amazed at what mother nature can create. She is a bit of a funny lady…

Twenty photos later of just this one flower…who his laughing now!? She has definitely captured my attention.

I have spent many an hour sketching flowers this past week for my surface pattern design course. It has made me stop to think what is it that I really love about them.

I love their carefree whimsical nature, their texture, their odd shapes.

I love them in any color…especially complementary colors!

I love the attention they demand.They are little pieces of artwork onto themselves.

My friend Lori who is hosting this months flower challenge refers to flowers as natures way of smiling. I like that!

Still patiently waiting for the flowers to bloom here. Mother nature is a bit of a tease….hot, sunny weather all week, but still no leaves or a flower in sight!

Still having fun in the sun…

  1. Wow…gorgeous pics. And they made me feel nostalgic too. All those flowers were a familiar sight where I grew up. The climber with those orange flowers used to be all over the roof. ….an hibiscus…..and is the red flower in the bottom most pic of the collage Gulmohor?
