Pink Champagne is my favorite color from Pantone’s Spring 2010 report. Each fashion week, the peeps at Pantone head to the shows to report back on what they see as the color trends for the upcoming season. (Hello, fun job!) I think they’re right on, here, with the coral, pink champagne and light brown. I think the other colors are a little too bright … I had envisioned turquoise, but paler, like water, and yellow, but lighter like lemon chiffon.But what do I know? I sit in my studio all day …

Happy May Day! The first of May always reminds me of Meugets, or Lily of the Valley. If you were in France (le sigh) you’d see these everywhere, as it’s tradition to hand your lover or friend a small bouquet of these flowers today.

I snapped this shot with my iPhone last weekend outside the local Rancho Santa Fe library. The local Garden Club does a truly spectacular job of keeping the village full of beautiful flowers. I especially love these melon colored poppies.
I’m loving springtime. Over the weekend we had a true rainstorm. With one bolt of lightning and a clap of thunder and everything! (It doesn’t rain much here in Southern California). I let my son (he’s five) stick his face out the window so he could smell the lovely rain scent. It was Friday night, and he was worried about the “Eastery Bunny” being able to make it on time due to the inclement weather. He suggested we leave a trail of carrots and lettuce leading up to our door so that the Big Guy could find us in the rain. I’m happy to report that the trail of carrots worked, and the bunny made it on time.
