Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Lilacs In Bloom

One length of my backyard fence are lilac bushes that were probably first planted in the late '40's. When I come down the stairs on April mornings, I see a wave of soft violet and magenta blooms. I appreciate this kind of wake up.

Red Tulips

This clump of amazingly red tulips just appeared in one corner of my yard. They are like royalty appearing amongst humble folks - you can't ignore them !

Continuing the musical metaphor, these budding tulips are the chorus of the spring concert.
