The crabapples are in full bloom here in our little Montana valley, and boy are they gorgeous. As in, I almost drove off the road several times yesterday when one would catch my eye. That kind of gorgeous. All shades of pink and gorgeous whites.
Last spring, we planted two weeping crabapples in front of the greenhouse, and this year they are putting on an amazing show.
Time to break out my Florabella actions and textures and have some fun.
A little texture......
I'm still not sold on my texturing skills, but they are so fun to play with.
I love the pink blossom/whitish blush bloom combination.
A little pink sky....
Who doesn't love a pink sky?
My youngest brought home his art portfolio yesterday and we had a discussion about how to add the surreal factor to your artwork.
This is my contribution to the world of surreal art. A pink sky.
Speaking of pink.....
Water droplets anyone?
I love them all, but I think the first shot is my very favorite.
Here it is again, so you don't have to scroll all the way to the top. I always try to help a sister out any way I can.
Do crabapples do well where you live? Or are dogwoods your spring showstopper? Perhaps the beautiful redbud?
Name your favorite spring tree!
(Disclaimer....I realize for some of you that spring is long gone, and you are currently blazing your way through summer, but for today, pretend you're a northern girl and your blossoms are still doing their springy thing!)
