Poppy Pants?

This is a fun post. We are in a Zone 5 winter freeze here but we’ve still got colorful flowers blooming  in our gardens thanks to this whimsical attire worn by niece Katy.  Blooming Pants at Crabtree Gardens (15)

She arrived on Saturday wearing this one-of-a-kind flowering vine with big flowers and fabric leaves on her jeans.  I just couldn’t help myself!  They were a breath of spring on this otherwise bleak winter day.

These masterpiece jeans are the creation of a friend of Katy’s named Dawn Heim.

There’s some beautiful hand painted artwork in this cute vine climbing right up to her hip.

I asked her to do some poses to look as if she were a vine entwined around our Gratitude Tree. I’m no professional photographer but it was fun asking.

Katy was truly a good sport about the whole photo session, we had so much fun! The Lemon Drop martinis made it even better.

Now I’m loving these jeans so much, I’m asking Dawn to create a masterpiece for me.  Could there be poppies and leopard on them?  You bet! Can I pull-off this look? I guess we’ll see….. stay tuned!

What do you think? Where would you wear these fun frocks? In the garden perhaps?
