Faded Daffodils

The Daffodils are faded away... all that remains is the leaves, which are slowly drooping lower and lower. The Love-in-the-mist is just about to bloom and cover up all evidence of the daffodils. I made this when they first came into bloom. Pure spring-time joy! As spring moves into summer don't forget to stop and smell the flowers! Or take pictures of them!... or paint them :)

Here is the inspiration for my painted daisy. The colors were so beautiful I couldn't help but be inspired!

Spring Garden

I love the garden in the spring. It is emerging, growing and is mostly green. Over the weekend we had a good soaking rain and the plants grew inches overnight. They are a joy and an inspiration! The bee balm is just coming up in this picture, taken a few weeks ago. Yesterday the little fairy was totally engulfed and had to be moved!


Welcome to the Green Queen Garden. Someday this will be an actual physical place, but for now it is a place that exists here. Here you will find many things... words, images, art. Enjoy!
