RAIN is the word of the day around here lately. Last summer it was a drought, this spring we're swimming in the puddles of our backyards. But how can I complain when we get results like these?
These beautiful photos were taken at the Missouri Botanical Gardens last week. I like to think of it as my home away from home. I'm a member of the gardens now, so of course I feel like I'm part owner. Which, I'm sure, makes me partly responsible for these lovely grounds. Right? (Don't you love how my logic works?)
|I still have these little rain boots my son wore years ago. I just can't get rid of them! I'll do something crafty with them and show you when I'm finished.|
If you can see the people sitting behind the tulips they are all artists. That was so nice they came to visit my gardens on the same day I was there.
Here's a closer look, they don't mind.
Back at home, I've been so excited to see my Amsterdam tulips blooming! I brought these back last summer and planted them on Thanksgiving Day. And 'poof!', like magic they explode into these beautiful bursts of color.
I should add that I'll be on vacation soon. I'll be back in business and ready to go (painting, of course!) on May27th. For those that don't know, I have a 2nd Etsy shop...PremierPendants.etsy.com. I create lovely pendants from images. A few are my own design, such as this one...
