Paintbox Of Perfection


No one has a paint box quite like Mother Nature...



To awaken us from Winter's slumber she provokes our passions with yellows as magnificent as the sun shining brilliant on a Summer's day.



And once she has encouraged our attention her painting mellows to a softer side, dainty with whites and pinks.



Her paint brush is unmatched...


her choices pure perfection.


* Pictures taken at area historic homes, local fruit tree orchards and along the Niagara Parkway.

Spring has really come your way, now, hasn't it? My daughter is in Toronto this week and has had hot weather and one snowy day - one right after the other. I hope you have had your last snowfall and can just relax and enjoy those blossoms.

Yes- that´s what I love- the tender blossoms in spring! They smell so lovley - and I like the big bumblebees hum around them.
Thank you for these wondeful pictures! You´re right- mother nature is the best artist!

Have a nice day- Ines

Susan i love these images of Spring. So beautiful! I have missed so many wonderful posts here and I need to go back and read them. I love the posts on quilting and the resourcefulness of the artisans of the past.

Oh Susan I couldn't agree with you more! What gorgeous photos of your spring... all yellow and pink. I love the Magnolia, and wish I could have one here, but alas the sea breezes seem too much for them to take. Spring has arrived, and so welcome! xxVicki

I'm so jealous. We had snow yesterday .... yes, it was sloppy and wet and is gone now...but, the only colour I have this early is my hardly little violets...and the green stems of my daffodils...which won't flower for some time yet....sigh........
