Goldfinches

I absolutely love these sunshine-y and cheerful little birds!  They flood our backyard every Spring when the acacia bushes behind our house are blooming.  I put thistle out for them to eat and on a good day there can be up to 20 fighting for space on the feeder.  One day after watching them have a morning feeding frenzy I created these base images.  Unfortunately I got busy with other work and my momentum on figuring out the overall design layout for these birds halted.  I decided to revisit them this morning.  We’ll see what comes of them.  I’ll keep you posted!   :0)

Drought Resistant Color Palette

You know when you walk by something and it just jumps out at you?  This amazing succulent planter was a gift from a friend and hangs in a pretty prominent place in my back yard.  It’s always been gorgeous but something happened this pas week and the colors just BURST suddenly so of course that meant I had to take a bunch of pictures.  

 

Need a little Camomile?  Here’s a color palette to lift your spirits

Need a little Camomile? Here’s a color palette to lift your spirits

Camomile, not just for sipping in its tea form.  Pick up a bundle of these sweet little beauties to lift your spirits and bring in that good wellness energy in your home or office. 

For centuries these little flowers have staved off illness, reduced inflammation, aided in soothing asthmatic symptoms, helped with body aches and skin rashes, sped up the healing of wounds and ulcers, and provided calm and rest to those who are weary.  It’s hard to believe such wonders can be held within such a little frame but that’s just the way the Universe works.  Little miracles every day.  Whether you are sipping, diffusing, salving, or admiring in a vase, bring these blooms into your home in one form or another for wellness and well-being so you can be all that you are needed to be today and this week.

Wishing you Joy, Love, and Wellness
