Friday Flower Pick : Jacarandas in Bloom

Purple Jacaranda Tree in Bloom in Santa Monica, CA - Flower Photography by Mademoiselle Mermaid

I think I say it often enough...but here is yet another of the most wonderful times of the year: It's jacaranda flowering season!!

Seemingly overnight, fairies sprinkled the Santa Monica streets with their magic dust and these gorgeous, purple blooms filled the skies!! 

...Now ordinary days are anything but, when the way is lined by such a spring spectacle!!


HappyFriday!!

Friday Flower Pick : Cinco de Mayo Rose

Striped Rose - Flower Photography by Mademoiselle Mermaid

Happy Cinco de Mayo from the flower lined streets of a Santa Monica neighborhood in full bloom!! Despite the heavy fog and clouds, I'm out strolling in search of a Friday Flower Pick to fit the red, white, 'n green theme of this festive day=)!!

A gorgeously striped red and white rose, set against a background of deep green foliage, is a perfect specimen to mark the day!!... And I found this beauty right outside a paint store, no less... (I thought it was very fitting, considering the way the petals look splattered with paint!!) 

From now on, I think I'll call this little stretch of the sidewalk "Artist's Way"!!


HappyFriday!!

Admiring the abundant roses, in every glorious shade of pretty 'n pink, I've spent a lot of time in Pacific Palisades this week!!...In fact, if you've seen a purple 3.75 mm crochet hook on Montana Ave, between the ocean and 14th...it's mine!! (Bounced out of my bike basket somewhere along the way:-)

...Inspired by the blossoms' beautiful blushing colors, I decided to take my pink cotton gauze caftans for a spin and celebrate the season with maximum mermaid style!!

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!!

HappyFriday!!

Friday Flower Pick : Flowers 'n Fairy Baths



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=)

HappyFriday!!

May I introduce my lovely, new, gold hologram hair turban?!
...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!!

Friday Flower Pick : A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

Peach Rose - Flower Photography by Mademoiselle Mermaid

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!!
