So This Is Spring?

I am not a happy camper!  Woke up to snow this morning.  Fortunately it is supposed to be in the 40’s today and mid 50’s with sun tomorrow

We had two of our very big, very dead oak trees taken down recently.  There is lots of wood for next year and a lot of mess that comes with feeling trees.

More yard work tomorrow.

Enjoy the weekend.   Wishing all those who are experiencing extreme weather a good survival.

As always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*

Plant A Flower?

Yesterday, March 12, was National Plant A flower Day.  To which I say HAH!  The only way I would be able to plant anything is with a pick-axe!

Instead I painted another Brugmansia on another tile.

I am not entirely happy with this.  The angle of the flower looks like it's taking off for outer space.   I also need to blend some of the greens a bit.

Another sunny day and the snow is beginning to melt a bit.  At least it is not as bad as last year!

Yes indeed, these are my flamingoes in a snowstorm exactly one year ago.  Cold comfort indeed.

Flower Friday

Yes, I do know that today is Saturday.  I posted this in Facebook yesterday then got involved in other stuff before posting here.

This is a purchased terra cotta tile glazed in Spectrum #799, majolica white, painted with my own mixed Mason Stains.  It will fire to a hot ^05.

The design is my take on Brugmansia.  I have grown these every summer, except for the last few years due to our caterpillar infestations.  The population crashed, and we have had a few dead trees removed, so we don’t have to be too concerned about branches falling on us.  I am looking forward to warm weather and redesigning the garden to accommodate all the sun we now have.

We’ll see, grasshoppper.........we’ll see..........
