Poppy Paradise

My long awaited poppies have begun to show their pretty little faces! These little flowers love to shout out their presence in a beautiful array of colors , bright enough to put any ball gown to shame. I love growing Shirley Poppies, but it has been a few years since they have graced us with their appearance. Thank you , Thank you , Thank you !!!
Oh to be a "fairy" and wear one of these delicate beauties as a gown!

Life is spinning by!!

Well the summer...and my life!!! Keeps spinning by!!!!! We have had a lot of fun as a family, but every day seems to be slipping through my fingers like water!!! We have had rain forest weather... ( I was pretty sure we lived in a desert ...but oh well...) The days have been cool and wet and the roses are absolutely in rose heaven ...Or maybe I am... I think my peas are pretty happy as well, not to mention my beautiful red lettuce ...both of which I have never been successful with before.
I have been sewing too... currently 5 little flower girl dresses, aprons, doll clothes, and hopefully soon skirts and jackets! I will be including patterns for these items in my store soon!
My camera and I have been very close as well... of course I am trying to save my moments with the adorable kids and the beautiful lush flowers on film (or computer , which is the case with my digital world...) .
Illustrating is also sneaking in there as often as is so much fun to do art!!!

When you plant flowers can create your own little paradise! I am so grateful that I have had this small piece of land and the opportunity to do so. What a blessing . When I am in my garden, I often think of Celia Thaxter and her writings and sentiments about her beloved flowers in her book "An Island Garden" .
The way she talks about each flower with such poetic verse and love amazes me. I especially love her detailed explanation of poppies ,her delicate description of each painted petal is so sweet. She talks about every flower in her garden with love and admiration , as well as the song birds, and toads that serenade the days and nights away. I would recommend the reading of this lovely book to anyone who deeply loves the garden.

Thinking Pink!

Why is pink so lovely? When I think pink my mind can just take me to such beautiful places.
My garden theme this year will be pink! ( of course there will be other colors that I wont be able
to turn away too) But mainly the beautiful pinks! Well off to the Nursery! and then to the dirt!

I have been so busy lately that I have neglected my blogging!!
However... I have been enjoying the beauty of the outdoors ( The lilacs and snowballs are in bloom) ...and my family. I have also been so excited to become an illustrator selling stock on line! It is way fun! I have always loved art, drawing ,doodling ...and now have an excuse to do it is so much fun!! Images are racing through my head, and I never have a time when I dont have oodles of things I want to get down on paper! And I can still stay home and be a mom. Perfect!
