I feel pretty, oh so pretty... by 

Glorious daffodils on a lovely spring day at Cox Arboretum in Dayton, Ohio.

This was entered in a song challenge on another website and when I was considering what to enter, I saw this photo and the song from the musical “West Side Story” immediately came to mind. I liked it so much, I kept the title.

I Feel Pretty lyrics

    ’Ae! How wonderful!!!!! Aloha darling Rachel!! I am delighted to see you are here on RedBubble as well! Thank you so much for your kind note, I am so happy to hear from you! I love this site so much, there is much more freedom of expression and the resolution on our images is far superior than on WS. You know how much I love this beautiful image, it is brilliant and is one of my many favourites!! Love and Light sweetheart!! Sharon

  • Thanks so much, dear Sharon! This is one my favorite photos I have taken too. It’s so cool to think I can order a card of my own photo and send it to someone, telling them I took it! And, wow, that would be wild having a print up on my wall too.
