Friday’s Flowers: Evening Primrose

Flowers are a love of mine and I was thinking about them over the holidays. Throughout the spring and summer, I frequently share photos from around my garden of my lovely flowers. During the winter months, I wait for my indoor flowering which occurs in a very short period of time. I have quite a few and a Christmas cactuses and several orchids. Then when they are done showing off, I buy cut flowers and vase them throughout my home.So I got to thinking and I thought of a new series I would like to share with you called Friday’s Flowers where I will use my trusty Silhouette and cut out and make paper flowers. I will aim to post these at least two Fridays a month and best case, every Friday.So our first beauty is called an Evening Primrose. I first bought a primrose over 11 years ago. I was shopping with my mother and I saw it’s vibrant colors and the rough foliage and fell for them. I was happy to hear that they were one of the first flowers to bloom in the winter. Because that is the time of year, that I start to get anxious for the heat to return so my flowers will come back. I placed some in my tree ring in my side-yard and they did come up as planned but I just didn’t think they were good for that location aesthetically. So I pulled them out. I never bought more but still find them pretty to look at.This cut file is for the yellow variety but I really liked the rare blue evening primrose. The contrast is amazing.  I tried to recreate the colors with my cardstock and Silhouette.Now that I look at this image from the internet, I think I will chalk the edges of the petals to create even more of a likeness.

I hope you like this new series. I know I had fun making this first flower.

Have a blessed weekend!
