Fall Surprise


The tree that flowers abundantly each Spring gave me a little surprise this Fall.

All along I believed it was a non-fruit bearing plum.

Well, they don't look anything like plums!

Happy Anniversary!


There's certainly nothing I need but DH scored big when he gave me this new orchid for an Anniversary present. Small enough to fit in a coffee cup but loaded with flowers, it fit right in with the rest of the family.

Just looking for the carving tools


Three little punkins sitting on the shelf...
I'll soon be carving them up to make Jack O Lanterns for Halloween.

Painting and Football...

I got to paint these little bits today while watching football. I love this new arrangement called "red zone".

All the action and excitement of all the games can be seen.

New England added a little weather to the mix...hence the snowscape!






Then things were bleak for the Lions. I had so much hope...hence the bare treed river bank.












All in all it was a very good day...Drew really wiped Eli's nose in it. (It's the only time I don't scream for the Giants.) Buffalo did it...and Brett had fun too!

A beautiful fall day!

By the Sea


Well it used to be!

Now it's part of my collection.

It doesn't remind me of the Bahamas and the sun and sand and coral but it does make me yearn for conch fritters!

Sun setting even now


It isn't raining at this moment and the sun is going down. Just over an hour of day left, wishful thinking? Sure!
Bad news for all you guys back east...weather headed your way and I heard the "S" word!

What's the story?














Yes it is...Morning Glory! Yet another watercolor greeting card, measuring 5x7 and blank inside. Mail it to a flower lover or mat and frame and keep it for yourself.

How Soon?


It rained again today. That can only mean one thing, there's snow falling in higher elevations.

How soon will it look like this?

Another 5x7 greeting card suitable for framing or sending to someone special.

On the greeting card express



Took a little break to plant some flowers but I'm right back at my table getting a few new greeting cards ready.

Another sunny fall day. Can't stay away from flowers. I love my orchids and live in the land of roses so there you go!

Planted a zillion of these and none showed up!

Don't seem to be able to grow things outdoors. I planted so many petunia seeds this year and guess how many popped up...

None.
If they did, they would have looked like this.

Maybe next year.

Fall Greetings


So many sunflowers are hanging their heavy heads. Another sign of the season, loaded with seeds and tempting all the birds.

Back in greeting card mode and getting ready for a show.
