Saving the flowers....
(softly out of focus as the camera only works in sunlight these days.....)

In May we have our most abundant and beautiful flowers in the flower beds. This morning the sky has grown VERY DARK (no sunlight for my photograhpy!). I know these blooms might be beaten down by winds, rain and hail when the storm gets here...so why not pick them for my very own bouquet for Mother's Day weekend! I will even be able to paint them in watercolor and acrylic.....back later with the paintings!



Here is the watercolor!

I enjoyed the tour of your May garden enhanced by your watercolor versions of the garden. Your portrayal of the Japanese painted fern placed next to the photo of the fern delighted me.

In focus or out, those are beautiful flowers! So nice to see them.

[Thanks for the email... I'm still limited in what I can get the laptop to do, and simply don't have time this week to go get repairs done. AND car trouble today, too. Bad week for me and machines!]
