Dreams is posting a small watercolor sketch daily.  She will be giving it to one lucky follower!  Sign up for her blog post to be in the drawing!  With all the travel this summer, I'm doing little pen & watercolor in my journal. Today I decided to try one from her posting ....join her in France via little videos and photos

Columbine


6"x6" Transparent Watercolor
Dick & I visited the Yampa Valley  Garden
on Saturday and all the spring flowers were in
bloom.  I had visited the gardens when we were here
about 3 years ago, but it was fall.  Spring has sprung
in the Rockies!

Flower Name

Angels' Trumpet - Jill Macfarlane a friend and Florida artist ...... posted on Facebook....
Angels' Trumpets belongs to the nightshade family and is highly toxic.  Keep the plant
away from young children and pets, and gardeners should wear gloves to prevent contact
with the plant's sap!

Flower Hawaii???


6" x 6" Transparent Watercolor

I have no idea what this flower is called (if someone out there
knows please let me know)....the first time I
saw one was at Renoir house in the south of France.  They are huge...
about 8-10 inches long.  We just returned from Hawii and I have
to say it was "wonderful".....we drove "the road to Hana", which is
 the road into the rain forest.  Long winding road but it was worth the
eight hour trip up and back.
