Sunny days just up ahead


Hellebore. I love these plants, so mysterious and lovely. Their colours are muted and soft. These were at the farmers market. Speaking of plants and markets, this weekend is reported to bring FANTASTIC weather, June temperatures and sunshine. I will be making another trip to the market I believe and the garden awaits:)

Also, thanks so much for the comments on my poppy painting and pricing art. Always a hard thing to do. We want to be fair but also make some income. I won't be putting it up for sale online after all:) A lovely individual sent me an email wanting to buy it directly. Hooray!

These photos are so lovely. I think this is the first time I've seen flowers like those. Right now the dogwood trees are in bloom and they are beautiful. I so love Springtime!
I'm going to have to check out the Owl book you mentioned. Have a beautiful weekend!

Well, I didn't think it would hang around too long! Cool :-) Love the flowers. Just been into town with my mum because she wanted to buy me a super early Birthday present (as I'll be away) - a book on flowers ... very happy and hopefully soon I'll be able to increase my own knowledge, which currently stops at daisies ... lol!

Another lovely post. You bring out the best of spring.

Glad to read about your painting. It's no surprise but good to hear anyway!

I was just thinking about keeping paintings, and actually just posted about it! I love your poppies, and the way you use colour. X

How wonderful is that about the painting! Good for you..and those flowers are awesome. I am so intrigued by some flowers...like irises and orchids. I could just sit and stare at them. It's so hard to believe they are real.

i LOVE these plants too. I was just telling my brother the other day when we visited the Botanical Gardens that I wanted to plant those in my yard. He said, "but they're so muted." I said i like them because to me they look old fashioned or something.
