Okay, this is the third time I am attempting to post this. Last night, trying to keep myself busy, I put up a long post with many pictures, TWICE!! Both times it disappeared. There was no draft and I couldn’t do anything about it. So went to bed. Here I am this morning, trying to recreate.
This morning, the temperature was 36 degrees. Peg my neighbor and I went for a three mile walk. It was so good, with a lot of sunshine and no wind. And would you believe, the roses, dahlias and other flowers are still vibrant. Hunh??
The dahlias are so gorgeous to look at. On Saturday I planted 160 tulip, crocuses, and hyacinth bulbs, and while doing that, I saw a Monarch sitting on the dahlia bloom. I think it was drunk with the nectar. I ran in the house and brought the camera out and snapped it.
Doesn’t it look so good?
The color of the leaves are just so good, but in my opinion, I don’t think the fall this year was as spectacular as the previous years. I don’t think we had enough moisture.
And, I have been continuing to paint. Kaylar, a reader from Xanga and a friend on facebook, had posted a picture on FB a week ago. I snapped it and painted it. The other picture is from a photo I had taken of sunset here, as viewed on my street.
Yesterday, I added another leaf to this painting. Not sure if I will keep adding more! 🙂 Also, I have bee trying my hand in pencil sketching. This is a scene from Hawaii I saw in a book.
While every one was glued to the TV last night, I sat and watched a series on Netflix. It is called The Crown. Enjoying it.
Have a great day. I hope I don’t lose this now.
