sneak preview

tickled pink

hello! good morning! happy monday!

i thought i would just pop in quickly to give you a quick wish for a good week and a small preview of the gorgeous flowering trees and shrubs that i was able to catch over the weekend.

these spring-time blooms don't hang around for very long, so i was determined to go out and capture them on camera while they are here. we had the most beautiful sunny weekend {although a bit chilly } for shooting. i was eager to get out, and i found that one of the best times of shooting i had was yesterday after meeting two dear friends for coffee. we met on the woodstock square {where i got married }. after sitting on a bench in the sun and chatting for a bit, they went on their way and i stayed to take some pics of a gorgeous pink-flowered shrub. i'm not even sure what it is called, but i knew i had to stop and photograph it.

i walked around the bush for about a half hour, looking for just the right angles to get just the right shots. i was sooooooo happy with the results, and i look forward to posting many more of the photos from this small span of shooting. you could say i was tickled pink with what i got.

if you stopped by yesterday for my text tutorial only to find it was not there, i apoligize. it took me a while to get it posted, but i eventually did... around 10:00 at night. but better late than never. see my post below, if you were and still are curious.

have a wonderful week! i'll see you soon with lots more pink!
