|aaaaaaaaaah lilacs! : )|
I must stitch this with silk ribbon - how simple yet perfect! Aaaaah, lilacs! How can you not walk by a bush full of blooms for the first time every June and not break into a smile and stop over for a sniff!? I love lilacs!
My daughter and I went out for a drive down Silverspring way and parked up high overlooking the Saskatchewan River. I found purple!
|Purple! Do you see it?|
I didn't see it at first. I had my eyes peeled for flowers. It's going to rain for days here, so I figured now is my chance...
Here: the next photo is a close up of the slope down to the water from the scene above. Now do you see it?
|zooming in... see them now?|
There they are! : )
AWE! Aren't they sweet!? A perfect bouquet. They look like they are growing up, but this is the view down a steep slope. In fact, this 'bouquet' was growing vertically, sticking straight out the side of the bank! Cute.
I LOVE this next photo...
* LOVE IT *
It's one of those that are singing out, 'stitch me!! oh please stitch me!!'
There they were - all this purple blooming atop the grasses high on the bank. There we so fine that it was very difficult to see them while driving by. In fact - I did not notice them at all. I could only see a faint blur of smokey fuzz growing under the bunches of wolf willow. Once the evening sun hit them though, THAT is when I noticed them. HOW PRETTY.
I just love the prairie. I really can't help it.
