Bold, dazzling resurgence
Nature’s reawakened dream of soft, supple hedonism
Filling nostrils, entrancing eyes
Translucent petals gazing upwards
Bidding us attend to the beauty at our feet
This delicate, fragile feast too soon a memory.
I cannot let spring go by without singing its praises. And just as the warm breezes and radiant sun return to this cold,wet island, so do the wildflowers in the fields. One of my favorite walks at this time is along a circular route along a headland called Tower Point. While the stunning ocean vistas captivate all year round, in the spring the land delights with an abundance of camas and white fawn lilies tucked in amongst the trees and bushes along the well worn paths.
The prints above, titled Glimmer, are three monoprints created from photographs of the camas in this area. They are offered this week at $50 each.
More photographs of this beautiful park in spring can be found here.
Meanwhile the pieces below can be viewed at Coast Collective‘s Bloom 5 show, on until April 7th. Together with a multitude of lovely floral artworks on display are the interpretive floral arrangements created by the Victoria Flower Arrangers Guild.
