Gardens of Easter

Easter and flowers have always gone together – for me. From the tulips of the Pacific Northwest to the lush and tropical fuschia bougainvillea blossoms of Australia. I can’t imagine Easter without any flowers!

Color for me is wonderfully inspiring, especially at Easter. Growing up in North America, it always was my herald of Spring and Summer around the corner. ย My Gardens of Easter have always been my Hope.

I’ve chosen a hot magenta bougainvillea with a complementing soft hazy background as the first image; next is a stunning parti colored tulip with scarlet drips and splashes on its frilled petals, ย the next is a watercolor collage image with Lunar Black and Quinacridone Magenta splashed on.
