Color Inspiration - Sweet Apple Blossoms
by Debbie Blair
Growing up, my siblings and I would spend summer days playing in the shade of a large apple tree that grew in the back yard of my childhood home. I still remember the delicate blossoms that covered the branches in the springtime, and the small wormy apples that filled its branches each fall.
There are so many blossoming trees where I now live that the city itself comes to life when spring finally arrives, putting to bed the dreary landscape of the winter months. I delight in such sights and scents of Mother Nature--a beautiful prelude to the pleasant summer months just around the corner.

This beautiful photo of an apple tree beginning to bud provides for a harmonious color palette of green, brown, and soft pinks. An apple pendant provides the perfect accent to my strung necklace of pressed glass and carved wood rounds, and a mauve silk ribbon adds the finishing touch.
