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!
