flowers from my garden

I thought I should spend a little time remembering what we did in our flower painting class a couple of weeks ago, there wasnt much in the garden, less now after the frosts, but I did manage to find some colour and painted this direct, no pencil lines! I was quite pleased with it but think that practice will make well not perfect, but better.
My daughter in laws birthday today so as I didnt have anything for her and money is tight this week I went looking in my bead stuff and made her a necklace that I hope she will like. Forgot to scan it before it went too.
We had rain last night, just what John had ordered so he was pleased. It was so much warmer we were throwing bed clothes off, a few more showers today so I hope that keeps the frosts at bay for a while.
One of those messy days today, I did the weeks shopping and as usual came home later than I meant to. The house is a disaster so I hope I can clean that up before we go to Melbourne on Monday for a week.

Oh,so pretty Penny. It is always good to hear about life there with your different seasons, flowers and birds. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Penny;

Your vase of lowers is really lovely! The colours are so cheerful and I'm sure you're really appreciating their beauty with the rain you've been having.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my Blog. It's always so nice when people with similar interests take note and comment on our art experiments.

This is lovely. I 'm glad to hear there's someone else who regards their house as a disaster.

The real thing couldn't be as lovely as this picture Penny.
