hullo spring!




ok, so maybe the birds + eggs theme of last friday's post was a bit premature, and i should've posted it today, you know - given the fact that today's the first day of spring and all.

either way, i'm celebrating spring's arrival the best way i know how - attending the 13th annual canada blooms gardening exhibition with my mom and sister. it's gonna be fantastic. can't wait.

the top picture that i've posted is one that i took at last year's show - i took it with my point-and-shoot and the lighting in there wasn't that spectacular, and haven't been able to correct for the super-lighting of the fabric on the chairs (i dont know what fabric it was, but it had a sheen to it), but i love the orange and green combo. that they'd make spectacular wedding colours, don't you think?

and fyi - i'm not referring to any plans whatsoever on my part; i'm just sayin' in general - orange + green = awesome in my books.

the other two pics are swiped from the canada blooms photo gallery.

mark my words - i'm going to have garden + patio spaces like these. one day.

Yeah, so the first day of spring is a complete farce here in Northern BC. It's a blizzard today. Your pictures are great from the Blooms Show, I don't think the lighting is bad at all! It looks awesome!

I agree. Although lately, I've been leaning more towards a salmon/coral with an olive/chartreusey green. Although I can't lie, my wedding colors were orange and green (sort of). Everyone said, no way, orange and green? Tacky. But alas, we proved them all wrong!

I don't exactly have a green thumb but I would LOVE to have a garden like this! Happy Third day of Spring :-)
