Anemones and ladybug

Scored these beautiful anemones at the market recently, and they came with a hitchhiker! These flowers were so pretty, I think I took over 10 pictures. It's like when you see an amazing sunset or vista and can't stop snapping shots. SO looking forward to spring and all the flora that comes with it!

Beauty in subtlety

Even a muted sky can be beautiful. This one doesn't have the fiery reds and oranges of a classic sunset, but I'm loving the soft gray and periwinkle blue of this late afternoon sky.

Happy New Year!

Given my proclivity for photographing the sky, it comes as no surprise that my first post in the new year is of a gorgeous scene above our heads. I never tire of the changing sunlight and clouds and the awe-inspiring beauty they provide. May your 2020 be full of wonderful surprises.

Paris Flower Market

I love a good flower market. I also love Paris. Their flower market did not disappoint! So many aisles of beautiful blooms and options, and even some animal artwork here and there. When, oh when, can I return?!

Not your everyday vegetable

Whenever I'm at a farmers market or grocery store and see an unusual vegetable, fruit, or flower, I just have to take a picture. I mean, what does one do with this crazy thing? It looks more like something you'd use in a table centerpiece rather than something you'd cook and eat. The sign read "organic romanesco." Maybe in the cauliflower family? I must do some research...

Saxapahaw Holiday Market

We had a booth this past weekend at the Saxapahaw Holiday Market! The market looked amazing and so many people turned out ahead of the impending snow storm. Thank you to everyone who stopped by my booth and picked up their 2019 Year in Bloom JAKE & META calendar!

Customer appreciation

Earlier this month a calendar fan sent me a photo of their 2018 JAKE & META calendar perched atop their kitchen counter. I was so flattered! Not only is the calendar front and center, but it's adorned with beautiful flowers. Love it. Thank you!
