Day 4

Today is Monday.  Today is the day that I go to the walk in “crayon box” (floral wholesaler) and pick out the flowers I want to use for my weekly flower order.  I decided on pinks and greens with a slight touch of periwinkle.   The periwinkle I chose was grape hyacinths, ~swoon~.

I thought about bringing some home to enjoy and photograph, but the very first thought I had was “but all my pictures this week are in black and white, what’s the point?”.  In the end I did bring some home and I’m so glad I did!

I was experimenting with dark and light backgrounds and love the way they turned out.  Plus, now I have sweet little grape hyacinths in my kitchen window to enjoy.

On another bright note, the forsythia in our yard is starting to bloom, a lot of flowering trees have buds that look like they are going to pop soon, and this Friday weather.com says it is supposed to be 75 degrees!  I can’t wait to turn off the heat!

    I can still the color variations. I’ll admit to liking the color photos of your flowers better (I’d love to stroll through a flower crayon box!), but I can still see the color variations and appreciate the differences in the black and whites you took. I love grape hyacinths!
    75 on Friday??? So glad we’ll be back to enjoy it! YIPPPEEEEEEE! I’m excited to see the flowers and tree buds popping when we return home.
