Spring is definitely here, even with showers and a bit of snow still in the forecast.
About a year and a half ago, I tried to kill the wisteria that was growing up the side of my house. I suppose it was because I really didn't know what it was and it had attached to the downspout which had blown off the house in a feverish wind. In order to get the downspout untangled, I had to cut the wisteria back drastically.
Surprise, surprise! This season it is in full bloom even though the vine now looks like a huge tumble weed draping over the fence!! And oh, what a delicate scent it wafts.
It's wonderful how this wisteria looks like a bunch of grapes. The petals are silky smooth.
I clipped a bunch and put it into my coffee cup and just love the juxtaposition of real leaves and the petals draping over the design on the cup.
I know I've fallen off a bit in my picture taking and processing, but as spring brings new blossoms it also symbolizes transitions and new beginnings. I'm in a phase of discovery--deeper discovery. I'm exploring how to put my creative talents to work as a solopreneur again, but out of necessity also exploring using those talents in other arenas.
You may likely see this blog go through some transitions too as I make decisions about my future and its future.
It just so happens that my friend, LeAnne has started a linky part at Flower Art Friday. I like to take pictures of lots of things, and these just happened to fit the bill to join in her fun.
No textures used here. I thought these images spoke beautifully all by themselves.
