I am also busy prepping for a few up coming shows and gallery hangings. Our lives have been so busy the past few years (with 2 going off to college and all that that involves) that I stopped hanging big shows in late 2007. So, now after a 2 year hiatus I am realizing, again, how much work is involved in the prep for a show. Let alone applying for future ones. Ah well, it is always fun once the work is hanging and people are admiring :)
I also wanted to mention in passing that this is my 100th posting on this blog :) (Party!!!)
So, on to this week's Friday Flowers which are my Daffs. They started coming up a few weeks ago and look gorgeous, OK, they did up until yesterday when it started to chuck it down with rain and crazy wind. :(
I love the colour of these ones, white with a gentle creamy yellow.
Thankfully, I cut these before the rain came :)
Such a sweet face, with the grape hyacinths in the background.
These grow in between the lavender which, incidentally, we had to plant to stop the Deer from eating the Roses.
Over the past 10 years I have plants thousands of bulbs, I love spring bulbs :) But as I have been documenting I am in a constant dance with keeping them alive, with the moles and the snakes burrowing I lose some into the abyss. The squirrels love to dig them up and eat them, I am wondering what they don't eat in my garden?! Plus the above mentioned Deer. Then the slugs and bugs, seriously, they have no manners and don't care whether I want pretty flowers in my garden or not they just eat 'til there little bellies are full, how rude, go to Safeway like the rest of us. Bloody free loaders!!!! (OK, venting at the little critters is over (He! He!) I know they are a fundamental part of the eco-system, so I am trying to live peaceably with them all.
Have a Wonderful Weekend. :)
Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
