Prunus serrulata ‘Yoshino’

Flowering cherry
ROSACEAE, The Rose family

For my birthday I did whatever I liked, which turned into about 24 hours of Making Things. I stayed up till 4 am sewing a skirt from fabric I bought while shopping with Eireann in Dole.

In the morning I when out photographing all the marvelous things that are blooming, including these nearly iridescent cherry blossoms. I used my tripod to see if it is possible to take pictures that are not blurry. It is! I do wish I had more macro power though.

In the afternoon I went to my studio and painted. Then Michael and I cooked a spring feast with fava beans, escarole, green beans and rucola. And I baked a chocolate roll cake with strawberries and whipped cream. Then I was very tired.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
