Photos from my raised flowerbed in my back yard taken with my new camera. Click to see larger photo. (Original size of each is 5.92MB 4320 x 3240 Pixels. I like my camera but they wouldn't upload that large). The plants are Geraniums and the bird is a Dove sitting in my dead apricot tree.
I spent a quiet day at home. I worked on two more cards for the water trade so they will go out tomorrow. That leaves me 7 more to do I think. But another trade (May) starts on Drawspace and of course I'm signed up. They are really small trades now. But the theme is Budgie Birds or around here we call them parakeets. I had one that died just a few months ago named Freebie.
I still have to finish up my Art House journal and get it in the mail. May 1st will be here before you know it. Then it won't be long before my birthday, and along comes June when my blog anniversary will happen.
Tomorrow begins a new week. Our art group goes to an artists garden a few miles to another town. I have been there twice before and it's beautiful. She had the best poppies and poppy pods. Plus some little still life-like scenes scattered around many other gorgeous plants. She designed it and she and her husband did the whole area by themselves. And she is such a gracious hostess when we visit. I'm looking forward to it.
As far as I know I don't have any other plans except buy some groceries. I am trying to keep my car trips at a minimum and do everything at once since the price of gas is so high. The last time I looked it was around $5.25 a gallon. Takes me $40 to put 3/4 tank of gas in my car and it keeps rising.
Have a nice evening.
