I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful, that the brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. I understood that if all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enamelled with lovely hues. And so it is in the world of souls, Our lord’s living garden.

― Thérèse de Lisieux

Today I’ve been thinking and dreaming of spring warmth, and summer flowers… Vivid greens, and the feel of the garden dirt between my toes. Anyone else daydreaming today?

Today I’m prepping for an evening session with one cute toddler. Remember this little one? She’s now two! These images are from her first one year session, and you can see more here.

Maybe I have a bit of my Mamaw Jordan in me, but I think I have a floral addiction. From floral patterns to flowers in nature… I happen to love flowers. So much so that whenever a flower blooms, if at all possible, I make it a point to photograph it. Because I have an ever growing collection, I’ve decided to offer fine art canvases of the flowers. I’ll be showing them here, but also on Facebook in a special album labeled fine art nature. If you have a specific flower you would like but don’t see, let’s discuss finding this flower for me to photograph!

Available sizes and prices will be at the bottom of this post. These prices will only be available through the month of May. So if you fancy flowers yourself and would like to order something, you can email me at elicia@thewhimsytree.com, or call me at 219-851-1466.

Whenever a flower blooms I instantly think of macro photography. I love all the details I can capture – from ruffles, to the soft texture of petals. I also can’t help but think about the verse that talks about Solomon’s clothing. Time and time again He shows Himself faithful…He certainly cares.

“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?” Matthew 6:28-30 NLT
