Beautiful Spring Inspirations......

I know last time I showed photos of the spring bulb show at the NY Botanical Garden, I focused on Violas and Tulips. This time I thought I would share all the beautiful garden vignettes they had set many beautiful flowers, arranged for the most picture perfect photos. (for a more up close look at the displays, click on the photos to enlarge them).

I hope you've enjoyed all the Hydrangeas, Delphiniums, Foxglove, Daisies, Dogwood and Allium just to name a few.
I've got some new pieces completed and ready to get photographed in my studio, I'll be showing those soon. In the mean time, enjoy the beauty that is blooming up everywhere around you.

The flower photos you've shared are beautiful... no wonder your paintings are so detailed.
I noticed you had asked a question about basil on Suzanne's blog and I'm sure she has answered to perfection. I would only add that basil comes in a great number of varieties each with it's own wonderful flavour and fragrance.If you pinch the younger leaves as they grow up the stalk they are great for fresh cooking as in pasta sauce etc. If you wait and pick the larger leaves you may dry them and then crush them for homegrown basil all year round.
