Ladybug Haven

Detail from Original
36X36 Painting

Now that the torrential spring rains have stopped in North Texas, the flowers in my back porch container garden are beginning to bloom. This morning I discovered a bright red-purple geranium filled with blossoms that had been hiding from the world until today. The winter in North Texas was so mild this past season that most of my geraniums survived to bloom again. I love to see flower gardens in full bloom, they fill my imagination with color and inspiration.

Hey Nancy! I was at the Dallas Arboretum this past weekend and seeing all the beautiful flowers I thought of all of yours!

Becky's comment is so right - the flowers makes one forget our problems for the time being!! Your flowers too.

Hi Nancy,

I've been away from my computer and have missed so many beautiful and exciting posts of yours. First, I'm glad Anabelly is recovering and that you all survived the tornados.

And this is such a lovely painting! The posts look so pretty and cozy that I can imagine curling up inside and taking a nice long nap... Beautiful!

Nancy, so beautiful. Love the composition and of course the colors. Great detail and yet loose. Terrific!
