Hi! Today, I’m looking out at my garden, at all the pretty flowers, and wondering if it’s a bad thing we haven’t had a real summer yet when everyone else around the U.S. seems to be hot and sweaty. Like my Dad, I’m not a fan of super hot weather, but I like a good warm sun puddle every bit as much as the next handsome ManCat. We just haven’t had too many of those here so far this year.
So, while I wait for the hots, and my Mom said, Yes, the hots are on their way,” here’s a sneak peek at the summer flowers I admired from out of my garden yesterday. Like all flowers, these are for looking at and NOT for sampling. I know that!
Mom brought these in for me to check out, you know, for studying color and shape, size and variety, like I like to do. Daylilies are so bold that way. I see Mom snuck a little daisy or two in there to mix things up. I’m good with that.
Because these are the flowers I think I’m going to paint next, I wanted to get close and take them all in with my artist senses. And even though they are not as bright and sunny as my usual summer flowers, yeah, I like them. I’m going to paint them.
Look for my new paintings next week at my Art Shop and let me know what you think. Or you could tell my Mom and she’ll tell me. She’s a good Mom that way.
Have a good Monday!
