.. Kwanzan Flowering Cherry ..

cotton candy pink balls on a sky of blue

friendship is a sheltering tree
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

          listen to the trees talking in their sleep, 

           she whispered, as he lifted her to the ground

             what nice dreams they must have

** these photos have not been doctored in any way
straight from the camera lens to you
can you believe it???
they are so amazingly gorgeous
you should stand under the tree!!

we had a most marvelous day 
.. blue sky & sunshine ..
let me say however
for some reason .. 
as beautiful as these trees are in the sunshine
they are twice as splendid on gray overcast days
the pink intensifies 
they are our happy flowers

Fabulous pink floral vintage needle point found while treasure seeking in Wenatchee, WA. 
I've been holding on to it until I had just the right materials to go with. 
Delicious spicy nutmeg suede leather from a outdated 80s jacket .. perfect match. 
A wonderful worn tapestry in wine & mauves .. lovely. 
A bit of stripe velvet upholstery from the 60s .. ahhh so nice! 
add a wee bit of lace & fun trim 
                                                      ... Oooo la la!!!

 slip beneath the surface and soar along the silent bottom of the sea
                         agile and shining in water honeycombed with light.

Ahhhhh Lisa,
all this lovely pink! Your meaningful posts always put me in a good mood. And your bags are so recognizable yours - I would be able to pinpoint them out everywhere and with no name on them as yours - they are so beautiful, romantic and unique!
