Lilac | 😎 I can’t get enough of this flower — in all its varying colors & sizes.  Nature’s pure genius. ✨💥

✨Almond Blossoms✨
I drove along nearly all of the Fresno County Blossom Trail yesterday and was happy to see that most of the orchards are just barely beginning to blossom, so there will probably be at least two more weeks of solid blossoms. If you’re wanting to take photos with bright pink blossoms, the time is now!  They are perfect! 🌸

Checking on the Blossom Trail right now and happy to see the pink blossom orchards are in full bloom!! They’re magical! ✨🌸 If you’re in California, this week is the perfect time to come take photos.  I like to use the map on GoBlossomTrail.com. It looks like the almond blossoms will be in bloom later this week! 🌸✨

Playing around with some print ideas using dried pansies.  How amazing are these colors?!! 😍

Want to surprise your valentine with a 5 1/2 foot tall rose, with a bloom that’s almost 2 feet wide?  I lowered the prices on these giant crepe paper roses for Valentine’s week (link in profile) — for U.S. sales if you order by tomorrow with expedited shipping, it should get to you by Valentine’s Day. Or just order regular ol’ shipping and keep the love alive all week — which is how it should be, right?! 🌹💋It’s kind of hard to judge what these are like in photos, but they are very beautiful in person.  I literally spent several days on each rose because I wanted every detail to be just right and these are HUGE. 😎 I think these are especially nice gifts for people who are ill, or going through hard times. The flowers are so large and bright and unexpected that they make people smile, which I love!  If I could afford the materials and the time, I’d love to make tons of these giant flowers for hospitals (especially children’s hospitals) and retirement homes and places that could use some extra cheer. Hopefully some day I can! 🌹Gotta spread the ❤️🌹!

Spring flowers sure have a way of sneaking up on you! I’ve had my eye on the magnolia trees in my neighborhood for weeks, and this one seems to have exploded over night. 🌷💥 Just saw this while walking Arthur at sundown. 😎

Thank you to every one who’s ordered prints and visited my site!  It means the world to me, since I spent so much time putting everything together and it’s brand new to the world. ❤️ To celebrate my launch week, I just added a specially-priced pack of 6”x6” prints to my shop called Rainbow Brights (because it has allll the colors). Five 6”x6”s for $50! 🙌🏽 This is a great way to get a feel for the quality of my prints — you’ll just love the color and feel of the paper.  I want everyone to feel this paper!  I love it so much.  This pricing is good for one week — through to Valentine’s day! 💕😎 BotanicalCalifornia.com (Link’s in profile 😘)

I LOVE how the blues turned out in my Blue Narcissus print!! 💙✨ Also notable: Apparently my editing skills were on fire at 1 a.m. this morning because my computer power cord made a little flash of light and then died — because OF COURSE it dies when I’m about to launch my website.  So I’m trying to roll with it and be patient and not annoyed while waiting for a replacement to arrive (Thank you Amazon Prime same-day shipping. 😘) So please bear with me a moment longer ...

You guys!  After ordering an insane amount of test prints from eight different printing companies and on 14 different paper types, I have finally found a combo I LOVE!!!! Do you know what this means?  I am ready to begin selling my prints and am launching my website TOMORROW! ✨🌸 Here I’m holding my Spring Blossom print — one of my favorites — printed on a bright white, thick, fine art paper.  I just 💕 how these colors came out.
