Drawn to the Scent of Spring

Sorry for the lack of blogging - I was away on a much-needed overnight girlfriends getaway (yes, it was as fabulous as it sounds), followed by an art sale at a local music retreat (great fun and quite successful too, so a double win), and then followed that up with the worst migraine I have ever had in my life. Nothing I took made a dent in it, and believe me I took... Jay finally ordered a doctor to the house to make sure I didn't have meningitis or something, it was that bad. I literally hadn't been able to lift my head up from the pillow for the entire day. Eventually an additional pill (and a valium from the doctor) finally put enough of a dent in it that I was able to sleep. Today I still feel like I was hit by a truck (and still have a bad cold, which is not adding to my fun...) but the light at the end of the tunnel isn't hurting my head quite as badly.

In the meantime, here are some gorgeous almond blossoms I was lucky enough to catch between downpours this weekend - conveniently tinged with red.


Pssst... Did you know that Society6 is now offering stationery too?

The subtle reds almost hide fully inside the white flowers. Yet, the bold ruby hue stands out so well, so is a lovely detail to an already beautiful scene. A fine flowery view!
