It has been very weird for me this week as it is Spring Break here in Oregon and for the first time in 22 years I do not have a kid in the local school system and so really had no clue until last week when Spring Break in Oregon was happening. I kind of feel out of the loop, it is usually posted on my calendar at the beginning of the school year when the new school calendar comes out but of course I didn't get one this year. I am sure I will get used to it. So, for now our Spring Break will follow our Ohio College student who's Spring Break was 2 weeks ago, confused, yep me too :)
So before I share with you this week's Friday Flowers I would like to say a big "Thank you" to Linda at Adult Indulgences for posting my Art Etsy shop PoppyPlace on her "Etsy Stores you must see" section on her Blog. Check out the spices in her shop they have great names like "Moroccan Madness" sounds intriguing.
And now for this week's Friday Flowers, which is the Beautiful Japanese Cherry Blossom Tree in our Garden. These photos were taken on a typical Spring day, one minute it is pouring with rain, the next sunshine :) I love working with that filtered half light on those days. The unpredictability of the cloud cover lends itself to creating pure beauty.
Can you see the little spider (I think sheltering from the rain :) and also the raindrop!
See the filtered sunlight, which I love, after a rainstorm and those glistening raindrops :)
This shot reminded me of a beautiful flowing layered wedding dress :)
And this shot made me think of the Tutus in Swan Lake :)
In these last 3 shots I love that half light thru the clouds before it starts to rain again, it creates beautiful and mysterious shadows and broad outlines.
