Inspiration from the Neighborhood

     This is time of the year around here that is quite lovely with flowers and colors. I went for a walk around the neighborhood where I knew some great specimens were hanging around. Wisteria is among my favorites and the rare red chestnut is fabulous also. I use a real camera as I think I get the best shots with it. Now if I can translate these colors and textures into quilts.
Pink dogwood

Wonderful photos! I use a real camera for almost all of my photos too. I have never heard of red chestnut and I thought Wisteria only grew in the south.

Beautiful photos, I love the Red Chestnut you have there and Wisteria is a firm favourite in my garden.

Gorgeous!! Someday I want a pergola with wisteria at the back of my house. There is one a block over from me that is stunning.

We have some wisteria here, but no dogwoods. I miss them.
