Bridal Shower Favors, painted by my sister

Bridal shower favors, painted by my sister. We gave a bridal shower for my nephew’s fiance when I was in Alaska in June. My sister paints glass and she and the bride-to-be painted the ornaments. Wild roses from Alaska.

Still On The Road Again

Evolution of a Rose

Having traveled up the West Coast from Southern California to Washington State, I am now in Alaska. The wild roses are blooming, and their soft fragrance is carried on the warm breeze.

Floral Ambiance

High Altar Ambiance

High Altar, Trinidad Church (Iglesia de la Trinidad), Porto, Portugal

The high altar in Trinidad Church, Porto, Portugal, was decorated with vibrant flowers. Flowers were placed throughout the church on all the side altars and other spaces with surface areas. I don’t know it was a special occasion or religious holiday. It was at the end of May. If anyone knows the background on this use of flowers, please let me know. I was fascinated by the stepped structure behind the altar itself. I saw several altars with this type of stepped backdrop in Portugal but don’t know the symbolism.
