Broken Bow Flora

 As I mentioned last week, J and I spent a few days down in southeastern Oklahoma last weekend (where I also did my latest installation for the Decomposition series, "Riot").  It's a beautiful time of year to visit that area -- everything was in bloom: the dogwoods, red buds, wildflowers.  Trees were just starting to leaf out.  A hint of fungus was starting to appear here and there (that's another photo post entirely).  We absolutely loved the scenery, and it was so refreshing to get away from a few days.  You don't realize how much you miss the "sound" of silence until you hear it.  There are few things I love more than the absence of urban noises - cars, voices, industrial sounds... and in its place just the low hum of the wind and a nearby stream.  So peaceful, so revitalizing.  We will definitely be back.
I took so many photos that I will have to break it up into a few posts.  The flora comes first!

Inspiration || Supernatural

It's been a while since I shied away from reposting content from other blogs, but I came across these images on Miss Moss this week and they struck me with inspiration, so I couldn't resist.  The photos are from a floral arranging studio lookbook for a couple of very talented ladies in Cape Town, South Africa: Emma Frost and Jessica Ellis.  Their studio is called Supernatural.  I love these so much, I'm not really even sure what to say about them!  Overall the concept is very creative, and it really gets my wheels turning!
