My friend in Tucson can't imagine knowing that
cold weather is coming. But my Torontonian
friends are jumpy. Ikea's selling Christmas
napkins and tablecloths already.
We might not mind winter holiday celebrations,
but we fear what accompanies them -- snow.
I went out to the garden and picked a small
bouquet of Nasturtiums and Cosmos. There
were about 100 little snails trying to defeat
the Cosmos, but it's that flower's first year in
our garden. They will win because they're
Have a raising-a-toast-to-summer day.
This is just beautiful Barbara! I've been looking at the manic nasturtiums in my window boxes and feeling they need to be painted too...maybe soon.
You are so funny, saving the bugs. hee hee
Hey Barbara your flower painting is so excellent really...I like the way you playd with the colour collection there....very amazing indeed.
Mine are mostly leaves. I have to learn how to get more blooms, but even still there are plenty of flowers to pick and paint. I am not that easy on the bugs full time, but every now and then it hits me that we are all just creatures. Then normalcy returns and look out bugs.
