Fields of Bluebells - Thank YOU, Andrew!

I am utterly enthralled with fields of bluebells --- the photos posted by my friend, Andrew (www.flickr.com/photos/100200300400500/7076301595/in/photo..) put me to dreaming of those amazing pink, blue, lavender fields. This painting, done while traveling around North Carolina in my husband's truck yesterday, is my more etheral interpretation of Andrew's incredible photo. My sincerest thanks to Andrew for inspiring this work -- and for showing me a view of bluebells I have never seen -- but can only imagine. Please stop by Andrew's photostream for some incredible photography!!!

 

Bluebells in Andrew's England, and yellow fields here in my region of North Carolina. The mustard fields are just beginning to bloom. I LOVE fields of wildflowers and grasses -- whether blue or yellow, white, pink or green --- fields are incredibly filled with all kinds of life - insects, birds, flowers, weeds, seeds - they're like seas of landed vegetation .... the wind making waves through the grasses and blossoms.... trees making shadows and sunshiney areas ... all of it -- magic ...and the stuff of dreams.

 

The next several weeks for me will be incredibly busy and my time on flickr will be limited. Our largest fund-raiser, The Arboretum's plant sale, will be on Saturday -- and so my work week will be filled with all sorts of craziness! LOL The following weekend will be an exhibit of artwork (mine included), and the weekend after that I'll be visiting my mom and away from home. Whew ....

 

Today is also my youngest son's birthday -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE!!!!

 

And so for today, the sun is shining, the temperatures are warm, and the garden is calling .... it's a day of dreaming ....

 

Bluebells and fields of yellow ....

 

Gardens of vegetables and wildflowers ....

 

Sunshine and soft breezes ....

 

Hope your day is wonderful!
