Inspiration o' plenty!

I enjoyed last weekend with two of my favorite people - my college roommates. In between eating, talking and shopping :) , we went to a botanical garden. Yow, was there every plenty there to get inspiration from! Colors, textures, shapes, color combos... and that's even if you don't garden! I may use inspiration from both of these flowers in a future felting project. The tulip, left, is a pristine white with the prettiest stamens of inky blue with creamy yellow pollen. And the peony at right is great for texture and edge treatments (and the color ain't bad, either). Click on them to enlarge and enjoy.

These flowers were at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia, and info can be found at .
