I'm not ready to be done with Easter just yet!!
A passing glimpse of my Easter basket still fills me surprise and delight, even if all the chocolate is gone=)...and the remembrance of the magical stillness and golden sunshine one would want on a beautiful Easter morning, still fills my soul!!
This gorgeous, coral-colored rose was another part of that magic last Sunday morning, and the sparrows and mockingbirds filling the bottle brush tree outside my window are still singing her praises!!

What could be more irresistible and inviting to a fairy on spring morning, than a splash in this darling fairy bath?!! I can just imagine her, perched on the curve of one of those magenta petals, playfully kicking at the water as her butterfly wings flutter in the breeze I make as I sauntered by=)

...It's just in=)
...and just like you, it's made to sparkle in the sun:-)!!
Featuring a beautiful gold metallic fabric- positively covered in rainbow glitter, you'll look lovely in it with your hair tucked up as you relax at the sea shore (probably while wearing one of those cute, retro, high-waisted bikinis!!)
...Or let it cause a sensation at your next music festival when you wear it with mermaid hair and a gypsy styled look!!

If a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose...
then I've been positively showered with blossoms this week!! The spring witch-work is in the air, the flower pick-ing walks and dazzling daylight hours are getting longer...And so many rose bushes are bursting into bloom!!
Here are a few of my favorite picks from a recent meander through a favorite little spot- adorned with blue bird boxes, butterflies, hummingbirds, and fairy souls!!

Interestingly beautiful cloud-filled skies, impromptu morning rain showers, hills full of lush green things...and not to mention purple wild flowers in every shade from lavender to amethyst...that's how spring sprung around here!!
The little house finches and mockingbirds are all singing their happy spring songs, and I'm singing along...delighting in the enchantment of a fresh start!!
...Hope you are too=)!!

I love this tree, particularly because it is on the most ordinary of ordinary streets, tucked in the corner of a little parking lot, between the train tracks and a nondescript brick building.
...I hardly noticed it all, and then one spring, it burst into pink cotton candy bloom and took my breath away!!
Now that I'm hip to the exquisite beauty it keeps under wraps most of the year, I laugh when blowing by it on my beach cruiser (daily)...because nature is just fabulously delightful and endlessly surprising like that!!
...I'm off to catch a sunset to start the weekend out right=)

A spot for quiet morning reflections - of both the internal and external kind - is easy to find in the meditative labyrinth that is the Venice Canals.
I've enjoyed strolling and pondering along this botanical wonderland's narrow little pathways and quaint bridges for years now...in any season and any weather!!
Friday Flower Pick-ing has me at again...searching the canals for something breathtakingly beautiful and unique!! And I found it under this charming canopy of a flowering kangaroo apple plant, all pretty 'n purple and looking just like an early spring daydream!!

The ornamental pear tree is an ornament to society indeed...
especially in February, when it fills up the clear blue sky with a dazzling display of bright young things!!
Those lovely and delicate petals are as ephemeral as they come...and soon the street will be a remarkable sight as they lazily flutter to the ground.
...It's all part of spring's opening ceremony!!
