I know, it’s autumn, but I plan to do some spring catching up on the blog. I can’t seem to move forward without catching up. It’s time.
I’m still here. Kicking it and loving life.
In late March, I picked this little vase of goodies from the garden. In hopes to help my sick hubby to feel better. They certainly brightened the space…
Early April – I painted this image with the help of my Wacom and Photoshop.
Happy Easter! We spent the afternoon with friends watching our Red Birds on Opening Day.
A true Cardinal fan and our host.
Bring on the Cardinal color…
The beautiful hostess – Everything was positively delecious!
Children – Loved taking images of them in and around the pool.
Bashful – Image taken right after her first bite of dinner…But those eyes and expression…LOVE!
The big boys and girls had it made…
My Red Bird Fan! And my number 1 Hero.
Another early April painting. This is an underpainting (Layer 2) taking on a little shape.
A little shot of my kitchen window garden with a fresh rose from the garden.
A rose as it begins to drift away. I just love the color!
April 16 – My somebody special on his way to work to present to the customer. I’m happy his meetings went well…
Mid April evening in the garden – Enjoying the last drop of light…
Late April – Amaryllis in bloom.
End of April – We joined Costco! Now that is an event worth noting. It had been 12 years since we enjoyed the benefits of being customers of Costco.
End of April – It’s the time of year when the dragonflies return. They come in all sorts of colors during the season. Here’s a female laying her eggs.
May 2nd – Boxing party was held at our house! The hubs and his buddy putting the brisket on the smoker early that morning. And the sad thing, this is the only shot I have from that glorious afternoon and evening with friends. But the memories are priceless…
Our dear friend gifted us with the beautiful flag (made and painted by her) that proudly waves over our front door.
The heron has landed – I figured a shot was appropriate before yelling at him. Sometimes they are persistent around the fish pond. But my yelling and screaming at them seems to do the trick.
In early May, I had the gardener transplant this tree. I really hoped to keep it alive. Unfortunately, it did not like the new home.
Springtime dilemma is when a girl can’t figure out what color she wants.
One of my May dates to Red Lobster with my love = Time well spent.
Another May Date with the hubs at the Cheesecake Factory. Just love this composition at the hostess desk…
An early morning capture of the dragonfly on a net.
And a bee pollenating…
A little capture of the hubs boots at the back door – a nice reminder he was busy in the garden.
My Christmas wish for 2015 came early. As in May early for my birthday! I had told the hubs (months ago – Jan/Feb this year) when I spied this arbor that I would like it for Christmas. Not only did he remember. But he surprised me with this a week before my birthday.
Up on the hill at the top of the winding stair path is where I wanted it. And so it was…
On the morning of my birthday, the hubs knew right where to place the special card for me.
When a statue is larger than life – Sometimes it’s the little things that need to be captured. Just bummed my cell is the only camera I had with me on that May evening night. But a great evening and dinner along the San Diego Harbor with the hubs and a friend.
May 31st is the day we picked this big guy from the garden – Indeed we kept it on the vine too long, but we grilled it for dinner anyway. The skin was obviously tough but the inside was tender and good.
One last image – rosebuds in the garden.
And that my friends takes us thru the month of May, 2015.
Blessings – Debbie
