Pink Lisianthus and Abraham Darby roses are among my favorite flowers from the garden… they do fine in our hot summer months.

Even after cutting the Lisianthus and putting them in a vase, they last for weeks… nearly as if I just picked them! They're wonderful.

And, for some reason unknown to me, the images on this blog aren't showing as well as they do on the website. I have heard other artists complain about the same problem. I will need to spend some time researching and resolving that issue.

At any rate, here is a link to the image on the website for a little better look at one of my favorite subject matters to paint.

I love citrus trees! Especially when they're growing in pots.

With them it's a bit like Christmas throughout the year… their branches so brightened by their sweet, colorful (sometimes sour!!) ornaments!

Love that.
