One of my all time favorite flowers is the tiny Johnny Jump Up (Viola tricolor). Also known as Heartsease, he's a common European wild flower which grows as both an annual and a short-lived perennial. He has been introduced into North America and has spread widely, including all over my garden! He pops up in just about every bed of flowers and vegetables. I weed where I don't want him but am sure to leave plenty to enjoy, since the blooms begin in early spring and continue till late fall.
I've celebrated Johnny on many products in Bebop's Place. Here is a thank you card featuring this little guy.
And here's a Johnny mug...
Another flower I just love because it is beautiful and spreads like a weed in my garden is the calendula. B K Muir has created this lovely t-shirt which sports a labeled orange flower with dewdrops.
This a perfectly gorgeous postage stamp by Garden And Gifts. It features bright red geraniums which can be used as an R S V P for wedding invitations or just to spread some beauty and cheer!
Welcome to Bebop's Place
Beauty has been defined as "The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality." Since our responses are totally subjective, I can only speak to what moves me.
I want to share the beauty! I have created a variety of floral products for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous floral products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.
