  3. Hi Barbara, That is truly how the sky looked this morning, no photo editing...and the clouds yesterday, after the rain, were as puffy and white as snow.

  4. Those were the sweetest flowers in your last post. We are still far behind. As you can see, my trees are barely coming out.

  7. Gina, my previous post seems to have disappeared. Truly a Paradise, the sky, the flowers are too beautiful. I would give anything to attend your workshop in July but unfortunately I cannot. Will you be doing another one? I hope so! I am not sure where we left off with the lioness tile. Do you have a photo or will it be on your Etsy site? xo,

  10. Hi Barbara, Comments are not quite working yet. I think that I still have a lion tile. I Will take a picture of it and post it on Etsy tomorrow. But I can always paint a lion tile for you once I have an idea of what you really like.

  11. Hi Barbara, Have sent you pictures of 6 Lion Tiles via your e-mail. And yes, I will have another workshop. Often, I teach one-on-one classes for those who can't fit into regular schedules.

  31. Dear Porch Days, Most of my Daffodils were planted in a very large area near the pond quite a few years ago. Unlike tulips, the critters don't like Daffodil bulbs...so they have naturalized. Thank you for your visit.

  35. It's so interesting to see gardens from all over the country and what's blooming where and when. My jonquils and daffs have been gone for a few weeks. Even the camellias are finished We're on to violets, columbine, and almost peonies here in the Seattle area.

  36. Hi Meri, I have always envied you your great weather for growing beautiful flowers. Here, everything is late this year. We might have lilacs in a couple of weeks. You are right, it is interesting to see other gardens. Thank you for your visit.
