Blooming Marvellous 22.03.2013

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Blooming Marvelous

Hello lovelies! How are you all doing?
I'm very well, thanks for asking :-)
I'm feeling rather sparky this morning. I'm enjoying the fact that the snow has melted from the windows and the sun is blaring into the apartment.
It looks as if I'm not the only one that is enjoying spot of sun. A few of my floral friends have popped by to say 'hello'.

The Narcissus bulbs that have been sat on my shelf were longing for a little light.
They seem to have had a sudden growth spurt over the past few days. This morning they finally opened to bathe in the sunshine!
It may sound a little silly but I was extremely excited to see the appearance of these little yellow flowers. They were just sat on my kitchen shelf acting as if they had been there all along.

Nothing nicer than having little splashes of colour about the home.
The newely flowered Narcissus complimented the tulips and roses that were already spread around the apartment.
Now I know you've seen countless photos of flowers, but I couldn't resist taking some pictures. It's also nice to have a little project of focussing on a specific topic (in this case, my flowers) and play around with all of the features on my camera.

I do love taking photographs! I guess without realising it, photography has turned into a little hobby of mine. I suppose it comes hand in hand with the blogging, but the photography and sharing of the things I see around me is definitely the favourite part of my blog.

OOOOH isn't that a pretty colour!


Flowers are beautiful in shape and structure, but its the colours that get me!
If you're ever stuck on a crafty project and are not sure which colours to use, what goes with what? Have a little search on the web for different flowers.

Take a look at all of the amazing colour combinations and transpose those colours to your project! It's a sure way of successful colour sequenceing.
As they say.....Nature makes no mistakes! :-)
OOOOH LOOK!!! My Orchid also has some little buds! I was positive that I'd killed it!

You're surely going to be seeing some more snaps of this little orchid once it flowers :-)
