not in spirit, in color!
I've been painting up a storm since I last posted. I had a quart of robin's egg blue that I bought last year. It's from Ace Hardware and it's called Rossland. It's Exterior Latex, Semi-
I decided that would be my accent color in the main gardens. I gathered up an assortment of items and began painting.
I painted two of these wooden chairs...
A few birdhouses...
Did I hear someone ask what that lovely plum-colored flower is? Well, it's my Lauren's Lilac poppy that did not bloom last year. It has three or four buds this year. So now I have one pink, one white and one purple poppy blooming. I should have two of each, but the other three still have not bloomed. Two years and just a small tuft of green. At least the other three are not yet dead, so there is hope for next year.
I have tucked a few blue watering cans among the flowers. Do you see that red flower by the arbor? It's a trumpet vine and it should grow up to 12 feet and climb the arbor. I am excited about this one!
I still have a few more items to paint. I am sure I will have fun moving these robin egg blue accents around the garden all summer.
I still have no internet access at home, so don't know when I will be back. This is the first time in 15 years that I have gone over a week without internet access. I will be very glad to get it back!
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
