Florals (7)

Flowers always inspire me and I enjoy exploring all aspects of the floral garden.  My favorite is the Trumpet Flower or Angel Tears.   There are many other names associated with this bush or sometimes tree.  However, the flower is so fleeting and its blooms so varied, there is always something new to see and try to recreate.
