In the Mood for Flowers

I don't know about you, but I'm definitely in the mood for SUN, BLUE SKY, and FLOWERS! When I discoverd Judy Stalus' Etsy Shop last week I was hooked. Look at these beautiful photos! So romantic, dreamy, and a great reminder of sunny days ahead.

Here is a little about Judy's background and the inspiration behind her photos:

"I live on fifty acres of beautiful gardens, fields and woodlands in Walpole, New Hampshire with my husband and daughter Despite the harsh climate of northern New England I have flowers in blossom from March through November. I grow hundreds of varieties but have a special love of tulips, iris, peonies and poppies. I have iris in bloom for many months from the tiny iris reticulata and iris cristata of early spring to the summer blooms of bearded, Louisiana, Japanese and Siberian iris. Voluptuous peonies and perennial poppies are followed by dozens of annual and Icelandic poppies.


These gardens and flowers are the basis for most of my current photography. I photograph flowers in the garden, in the house, from afar and very close through every season. I began photographing in 1971 and my work has changed with me as my life has changed. I was a film photographer printing both black and white and color in my darkroom. But a few years ago I was seduced by the magic of Photoshop and now print exclusively digitally. I still use a few of my old film camera including my Diana from the 1960s, a Holga, and my Polaroid SX-70 Land camera but primarily shoot with digital camera.

I am represented by Green Trees Gallery in Northfield, Masssachusetts, and the Tarantino Gallery in Whitehall, NY and am an exhibiting member of the Vermont Center for Photography and the Walpole Artisans. I have exhibited in numerous galleries throughout the Northeast including The Soho Gallery and Mill Pond Gallery in NY, the Silverman Arts Center in Connecticut, the Sharon Arts Center and Keene State College in NH."
