There are bird houses all over the garden...and, yes...birds use them!
This red lily poked out just in time!
The yellow lilies were gorgeous as well!
Mom's Red Knockout roses are her favorites this year...she's got BUSHES and BUSHES of them!
If you've been following for long you will know that my mom is a die hard TEXAN...she was born in Pleasant Valley Texas at home, but she told me the story this time that her school was on Route 66! FUN!
Jackson the cat is her pride and joy...he's got us all under his spell!
We went to a new little specialty drink place one day and I got a fun lemonade that had this lemon that was the MOST PERFECT slice...I just had to photograph it!
Even IN the house mom has oodles of garden...this big old sunflower was sitting on the dining room table...great for a painting I'd say!
So, while I was gone my wonderful husband took these paintings to the ARTIST'S CHOICE show here in Lakewood...it is a very hard show to get in to and I was excited to hear that all four I entered got in! VERY RARE!...I'm pleased as punch, and I hope any in the area can pop over to see the show!
The reception for the BRUSHSTROKES GALLERY in Denver was FUN...I was able to re-connect with old artist friends as well as meet a few new ones...It will hang until the 21st...My SUNFLOWER hangs there! (you can see a smidge of it the next to last on the invite!
