I’m releasing a new set today that, wow, if you wanted to, you could possibly go outside your front door to find inspiration for coloring on this very day! Spring-flowering trees are bursting into bloom across the land, filling the air with fragrance, filling our hearts with promise.
I’ve illustrated a flowering crabapple tree (Malus species), but this week I have been enchanted by all manner of spring trees, from weeping cherry to espalliered apple, almond and pear, and if you start getting into the redbuds, dogwoods, and magnolias... I can’t even go there yet. Too much awesomeness, every where you turn! Here’s just a snippet of what I’ve captured the last few weeks:
|Masses of cherry trees lining the walkway at Missouri Botanical Garden|
|Gorgeous hot pink Columnar Apple tree at Missouri Botanical Garden called 'Maypole'|
|This baby pink weeping cherry tree is raining down sweet fragrant blooms near my folks’ house|
|A fabulous crab with dark cranberry-colored foliage and petals that look almost tie-dyed|
|This flowering crabapple tree is low to the ground and very wide, with the most welcoming branches for climbing. No children can resist to get up in it!|
|Looking up through the inviting crabapple tree, located in a little park area of my own town of Webster Groves|
Thank you so much for coming by today, and I hope you’ll give this very flexible set a try. It’s quite large and can be rotated all manner of ways for various effects. Plus, the set comes with TWO digital sentiments, created just for Mother’s Day! Enjoy and have an awesome spring day, hopefully filled with flowering trees!
