I was drawn to the orange yellow and peach roses in my mom’s garden today. 🌸✨🍑☀️💛

Sir Frederic Leighton’s Flaming June in petals. I’ve been craving the Mediterranean lately. Crystal blue coves, palms and pines.

I am ever pulled and pushed with the balanced rhythm of life, whisked out with the tides into the brinier, saltier seas, and then allowed rest back on a safe harbor’s shore. In my youth I would have stayed in the sparkling path of the moon, sailing out as far as it reaches, but now I just want to be holed up in a barnacled haven. There is room for both, and I am learning the tides.

My dad cut every picket of this fence, and my mom planted every flower.

Underwing Moths! These little guys look like ordinary grey moths until they fly and flash their colorful under wings! I made these for Metamorphosis, my latest journal filled with all sorts of Lepidoptera. 🦋 #metamorphosisjournal

It’s been 6 months of #flowercrownfolk ! Making a seasonal crown for each month turns into more like every week during the summer! It’s been so fun to see all the different floral creations. (and in my own case how the seasons have changed my skin) I’m dreaming up something for June!
