My trees are still blooming and beautiful!

The dandelions are out in their full beauty too.



Today was a bit windy.  André’s ears and wattles were both blowing in the wind.

I made labels for my lotion.  It’s not perfect, but I can live with it.

I played with the image below to make it look more like a drawing.



I also have my labels done for the Smoky Patchouli soap, which is a new fragrance.  It’s been busy around here, but in a good way!

I do hope you’ll consider coming back next weekend to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for next week are listed at the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing with SOOC Sunday, Macro Monday, Shadow Shot Sunday, Monday Mellow Yellows, and The Good. The Random. The Fun.

      Thanks, Margaret. It took me a bit to get the label figured out.

    Your fruit blossom shots are lovely, but I absolutely cracked up at adorable Andre, a’blowing in the wind! Your labels look very good.

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 1:05 pm #

      Thanks. Andre really is a funny guy. Makes me laugh.

    Those blossoms are so pretty! I wish they could stay like that all summer long…but I guess that would defeat their purpose!!

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 1:06 pm #

      It would be nice if they could last!

  9. Tamar April 25, 2016 at 8:44 am #

    It’s important to have a beautiful model!

      Meg was truly a pinup girl in her youth. Now she has the wisdom of her age. 🙂

  11. Andrea April 25, 2016 at 10:05 am #

    Oh how I love the patchouli! I really like your label actually. I also like what you did with that photo of the dandelions! I can’t wait to see them blooming again!

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 1:07 pm #

      I really did like how the smoky look turned out in the patchouli. Thanks so much for stopping by.

    Your flowers are so pretty! The few I have are still blooming and I hope they survive the next rain expected tomorrow. I like your labels..very nice. Have a good day!

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 1:08 pm #

      I do hope they last. They are such fragile flowers though.

  14. Freda Mans April 25, 2016 at 12:59 pm #

    I like the new look and feel of the blog! 😀

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 1:09 pm #

      Thanks, Freda. I couldn’t do a completely new thing, so I kept my header and used the same theme as my poetry blog. Still took me a while to get used to it.

  15. Birgitta April 25, 2016 at 2:08 pm #

    Great and beautiful photos!

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 2:15 pm #

      Thanks, Brigitta!

    Crab apple blossoms are near the top of my favorites of blossoms! beautifully captured

    • Teresa April 25, 2016 at 7:47 pm #

      They are beautiful. I certainly understand they they would be your favorites.

    I especially like those deep red cherry blossoms. I haven’t seen any trees blooming in that lovely shade of red around where I live!

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:49 pm #

      It’s some kind of cherry bush. I don’t know what kind. It is beautiful.

    Pretty blossoms, and it must have been windy!

    • Teresa April 29, 2016 at 7:57 am #

      It’s always windy in Iowa.
