“Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments; love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O, no, it is an ever-fixèd mark, That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wand’ring bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his heighth be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle’s compass come; Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved. I never writ, nor no man ever loved.”*
These beautiful trees are abundant in flowers and aroma and fill the house and gardens with luscious blooms and fragrant aroma. I am in awe of them as they brighten my Morning Room and smile as I now have eight lilac trees from the mother trees and soon will have a grove of them in my “Perfumed Land of Lilacs.” Stunning describes them best when brought indoors to photograph and enjoy.

I love infrared photography whether in shades of black-white or colors. One of our favorite photographers who shoots infrared is Clay Blackmore who creates amazing bridal infrared images. I love creating images of nature in infrared and then process with various techniques to create art for my “Art on Canvas Collection” for Classy Chic Home Design Studio. This is one of my latest creations for living room I designed in stunning pastels. It will be a very large canvas for the focal point for the room to draw one into the beauty of nature in spring.
“THIS peach is pink with such a pink
As suits the peach divinely;
The cunning color rarely spread
Fades to the yellow finely;
But where to spy the truest pink
Is in my Love’s soft cheek, I think.”
