I’ve been spending some time at the farm lately and I just can’t stop taking pictures. My parents always opine that “June is the best time to sell New York”. I think they are right.
The green in the trees is fresh and new and the sky is an indescribable shade of blue that offers a respite from the world. Some of my friends describe a deep feeling of relaxation when they are near the ocean. For me, that feeling comes when I’m lying on my back in the grass and gazing up into the blue sky through a screen of maple leaves.
I’ve been reading a bit about micro photography on other blogs and I’ve been making my first attempts at this style on the spring flowers in the fields.I found a few country flowers on a Salvo expedition. They adorn a good quality dust ruffle remnant from Pottery Barn. I’m going to cut the flowers out and find a way to incorporate them into a girly quilt. I like the rough pseudo hand-work concept.
I’ve been away from my sewing machine for a long time, but who could ever resist this blue sky?

You can give me a framed buttercup for Christmas! Country road, take me home to the place where I belong!
That yellow flower photo is AMAZING! I found myself staring at it for a while! Ah June in NY! I just got back from Ft Worth Texas, which I cannot say I recommend in June, but I do go to NY this Fall so I am excited 🙂
Oh and I like those flowers you found on your Salvo expedition!
