I have to tell you, I have a new love. No, it's not a sweet someone or a cute furry little friend. It's photographing food. Ohhhh...love it! So much so, that I just got a new book about food styling and photography the other day and I can't wait to devour all the words of wisdom it holds inside.
Today, I thought I'd combine my love of food and flowers into a photo frenzy of pretty, purple profusion. Try saying that three times fast :) A few weeks ago, my Jackmanii clematis was laden with blooms...just look at them all.
Wanting to make use of their prettiness, I paired them with some deliciously plump blueberries. Together, they felt so summery. I took these photos when it was so hot, hot, hot outside and since the berries were frozen, they thawed out and got all nice and frosty in no time.
My sister, the baker extraordinaire, whipped up these yummy little blueberry-topped cheesecakes for birthday week. It was my mom's, dad's and brother-in-law's birthdays, all just a few days apart. I think I gained a few pounds on the day we celebrated, since she also made strawberry shortcake and chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. Sometimes I just can't control myself.
Don't they look delicious?

Well, sweet friends, that's all I got for ya today. Hope you're having a great week.
Until next time...
