Blossoming Beautifully

The theme this week at Take a Word is BLOOM. Not only flowers bloom, girls bloom into women. It's a beautiful although tough period of time.

This girl blossomed into a woman before our eyes, right there on the big screen. Eventually she became one of the most spectacular movie stars of our time. Unfortunately she's not here anymore. Good bye, Violet Eyes (I don't care if they were really blue).

My odd underwater world

In my land of odd, people can breathe under the sea. Luck of them that can appreciate all that beauty. This is my contribution to this week The Three Muses Challange: LAND OF ODD.

The crazy house of mad Lucy

Nobody could understand her, but she didn't care...

Hello! The theme is GREEN at Take a Word to mark St. Patrick's Day. As I'm not familiarized to the date, I did something personal and added a Leprechaun hanging from a shamrock vine :) .

On the left is my mother, when she was 16 or so, in a B&W photo that was painted afterwards (something common those days), on the right is me, probably when I was 17, in a very poor shot. Coincidently, they are alike in some ways, so I put them together.

Backgrounds: Buzillo Stock (deviantArt) and Beth Rimmer; leprechaun and shamrocks: Google Images.

Mommy's flowers

Those british fairies had traveled all this way long but don't seem very impressed.

In my part of the world we also don't have 4 defined seasons. It's more like rainy time and dry time. On the other, is good to think in Spring and all the stuff that come together. So, here it is my quite literal interpretation of this week challenge at Three Muses (please enlarge).

these flowers are from the garden of my mother which I photographed in different moments. I do not know the name of all: orchid, rose, amaryllis, dahlia, bromeliads, hibiscus, azalea, arum, anthurium, hydrangea ... The background is also a photo of my mother's garden. Fairies are from an illustration of Arthur Rackham (1867 - 1939). There's a Beth Rimmer paper I used as texture.
