I finally finished my 8x10 oil painting of the white lamb standing under our arbor.
I decided to take the gate out and just make it simple since its so small.
It wasn't the painting I started out to do. It sort of dictated how to paint it as it went along.That and my neighbors daughter begging me not to cover it with chain link. :)
I do miss this little guy. So I will have a memory of him with this painting. Altho this photo doesn't do the painting justice.
My back and knee are doing a lot better.. so far that is. So we took ourselves off on a walk this morning to see what I could see to photograph. Right off I had to take a photo of this Mimosa tree in our neighbors yard. They are a pretty but messy tree.
|Up a ways these Canada geese were walking in a line picking bugs.|
|While my hubby was picking Blackberries. :)|
|We find more fruit along the way. Con grabbed a couple of these bug eaten apples and shared one with the girls when we got home. :) It was hanging along the walk before we got to our gate.|
|Our Veggies are doing great as are both our neighbors. You can barely see Fairs veggies back there on her side of the fence.|
|The squash is from Fair and the rest is from our garden. Nothing like fresh organic produce from your own garden.|
|The Sunflowers are starting to bloom They will get bigger and bigger and then bend over from the weight of it all until the birds come for the seeds. Which is part of the reason I like to grow them.|
|You can see our other neighbors garden is growing too. They share nothing. with us altho we always shared with them. I heard a strange sound coming from over there and went to check. It was like someone was smacking their lips in a popping sound.|
|This is what I saw in their yard. One Hen with Eleven babies. They hate Turkeys..I wont tell them.|
|Aren't they cute tho. I sweet talked them and they came a little closer to me. I didn't want to encourage them to much as they are messy and I cant afford to feed all of them. :)|
|End of walk I turn to look behind me. I am being followed. They come running thinking I am going to feed them something good so Con threw them some apple bits. :)|
Happy Paint party Friday
Always remember to stop and smell the Roses.
