Shakespeare in Love Spring Floral Show at the Mitchell Park Domes | http://www.roseclearfield.com

It’s been a little while since my last Mitchell Park Domes feature because Tommy and I didn’t make it to the spring show until a couple weeks before it wrapped. We went on a cold, rainy day, hoping to escape the gross weather. It turns out that when it rains, it drips in the Domes, too. Luckily Tommy is a super chill little guy who doesn’t mind a bit of water. The Domes have had known structural issues for a number of years now, and it’s still yet to be determined exactly what will happen to them. I really hope that they can find a way to keep them running, as it would be a huge loss to the city of Milwaukee to see them go.

Structural issues aside, Shakespeare in Love is such a fun, whimsical theme for a spring floral show. The color palette is perfect for the season, and I love the addition of the gazebo in the dome for the show. A number of the floral displays fit with the Shakespeare quotes, such as daffodils and lavender from A Winter’s Tale, violets and thyme from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and pansies and rosemary from Hamlet. Among other flowers, the exhibit also featured tulips, hydrangeas, and Easter lilies.

A Milwaukee Memorial Day Tradition

Memorial Day at the VA 2018 | http://www.roseclearfield.com

I hope that everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend. We had gorgeous weather here in southeast WI, Jake didn’t have to work, and we got to spent a lot of time with family and friends, enjoying good conversation, delicious food, and beautiful scenery.

All of that aside, one of my favorite things to do on Memorial Day weekend is visit Wood National Cemetery adjacent to the VA grounds in Milwaukee. There is nothing like seeing thousands of flags lined up along the graves to remember exactly what Memorial Day means.

As I haven’t shared any pictures of my nursery #2 progress here since early March, I’ve been way overdue to put together a proper nursery #2 update. Those of you who follow me on Instagram and watch my stories have seen a lot of peeks over the past few months, but that’s been it. Today I’m giving you a better look at how the room is coming together.

For the Love of Bokeh

For the Love of Bokeh - Bokeh City Lights in Pittsburgh PA by Lane Ramage Photogrist on Instagram | http://www.roseclearfield.comIt’s been a minute since I did a photography inspiration post on the blog. I came across this photo (featured above) on my photography inspiration board again the other day and couldn’t believe all of the fantastic “more like this” photos that showed up with it on Pinterest. So I put together a little bokeh feature for your viewing pleasure. Of course, there are so many ways to create amazing bokeh. I went for a darker urban vibe for this post to fit with my original inspiration image. Have a great weekend!

Art in Bloom 2018 at the Milwaukee Art Museum | http://www.roseclearfield.com

I’m way overdue to post my pictures from Art in Bloom 2018, which I attended with Tommy over a month ago. Jake and I have been Milwaukee Art Museum members for nearly seven years, but this year was just my second time attending Art in Bloom. It’s such a neat event that I’ve now made it a priority to attend every year.
