Summer Flowers

(A Phalaenopsis orchid that has added a much needed touch of color in our living room)

Flowers have always sparked some sense of magic inside of me, from a very young age I remember wandering my grandma's rose garden with such a sense of wonder. The aroma of her roses and the multitude of colors were similar to a watercolor painting. To this day, smelling a peachy white floral rose brings me back to the care-free days of my childhood. I am lucky that I have been able to take that precious memory and cultivate a rose bush of my very own. I have developed quite a liking of photographing flowers and over the past few months I have managed to capture quite a few. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I have. I hope that everyone is enjoying the first day of the long weekend!
