The flowers that usually bloom in May are blooming now. The world is just exploding with color and today I wanted to show you what's blooming here in New York. Inspired by the foliage, I took out my watercolors and created a compilation of the flowers I photographed.
Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. ~Claude Monet
