in the garden…

Vinca and zinnia and salvia

Marigold, black-eyed Susan, salvia, wildflowers

And one of my favorites, Cleome. This flower always makes me think it couldn’t make up its mind what it wanted to be. It’s tall and thorny and has flowers and crazy seed pods sprouting in all directions. I love it.

And last, a houseplant. This is my first experience with a Venus fly-trap. So far, I haven’t seen it catch any flies but I’m hopeful.

Happy Paint Party Friday!!


  1. Love your colourful flower paintings! Valerie

  2. What a wonderful collection of bright and beautiful paintings. LOVE THEM ALL!

    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Really lovely paintings. Each of these would make a stunning greetings card.

  5. Oh Boy! Garden paintings! My favorite! ♥♥♥♥ (Don't you have to feed the fly trap hamburger? I seem to remember doing that when I was a kid.)

  6. I love your flowers! hahaha And I love your fly catcher! These fill my eyes--which is the greatest compliment I can give. :D

  7. Fabulous all of them. We had a venus fly trap in the seventies....Your work is always so gorgeous...the color makes my hear sing!

  8. I love your garden. Very nicely done.

  9. you must have such a wonderful and colourful garden. Beautiful ...

  10. I already had a look at your beautiful flowers this morning for breakfast and laughed out loud when I saw the last one because at the same time an ugly, fat fly was stalking me all the time and I immediately wanted to buy this plant. Please let me know as soon as your venus fly-trap is successful. I love all the other flowers so much!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
You just made my day!!
