As we head into the last month of Spring I am  seeing blooms e v e r y w h e r e.  Growing through cracks, pouring over fences, dotting the cityscape with color, it's a great time of year.  I love walking outside and smelling night blooming jasmine - it  means summer is quickly approaching

Some people will say Los Angeles has no seasons, but it does.  The lightness of the air, the color of the sunsets, the subtle shifting scent of the trees and flowers have a  rhythm all their own. It's easy to love Spring because she reminds me through her bounty to celebrate all the different shapes, colors and textures of my life.  

I'm doing my best to take it all in, mostly with iPhone pics and quick notes in my journal while I'm working on my flower series for the year, which is so fun.  The hardest part was choosing which flower would represent Spring 2013  .....  Above is a photo of a beautiful design by Moon Canyon Design Co  that I saw while at the EPCF.  I'm such a fan of the spirit behind their creations - whenever I see one I get the sense of a heart full of love, life and freedom (interpretation totally my own)   ♡
