roses and peonies and iris, oh my!

I ran out on Saturday and snapped this photo, the first rose bloom of the year! This is one of those roses that smells heavenly, that old rose scent, soon, after a few more blooms open, I will be able to smell it from my studio….

I love my garden at this time of year, peonies opening, iris in full swing, pansies still happy because it is not too hot yet.

I would love to spend an entire week out there tidying things up, but not yet, not yet, our first jewelry show is less than two weeks away! So my garden will have to stay slightly messy until then, good thing there are so many pretty things to distract your eye from the weeds…

But I just had to share this photo. By the way, I used several of Kim Klassen‘s new textures to make it even more beautiful. If you haven’t discovered her wonderful textures yet, you should hop over to her site, where you can find a few to try out for free, and look at all her incredibly gorgeous photos, and purchase her texture sets, and take classes on creating lovely textured photos and textures, and well, you should just go there.

Happy perfectly pretty Monday!


Dreamy… I love it!

wow, this is amazing! I love it!

I love all your photography! I’ve just been looking through all your color themed weeks, and they amaze me! I love your macro shots, I take a lot of macro shots too. I’m hoping to get a new camera soon and wonder what kind you use? If you have any advice please email me at, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!


oh my… kelly… BRILLIANT… my friend… brilliant!

Such a perfect rose. I’d love to smell it!
Thanks for the info on Kim Klassen. I will check out her site.

Very romantic and delicate.
