Gardening all year Round

Shot weed  keeps me gardening all year long
 the first signs of the round little devils
 coming up in January. 

The Wall Flowers will reward me                             
when they start to bloom in February.  
I planted them from seed along the side walk where
they get warmth and full sun.  As they bloom 
out cutting them back seems to help. The plants have 
survived for three years and produce a lot of seed.
I find babies here and there so maybe the birds like them too.

This spring there are changes  in color and stripes in some new plants.

I Love Watercolors

 It is like coming home to my self when I get back to painting  watercolors, especially seascapes and landscapes. Visiting a place I've enjoyed to recapture the pleasure of that day using sketches and photos.
 Last Light at Ruby Beach was accepted to the Sequim Arts Show 

Playing in the surf  seems to be the favorite children. 
 As a painting it challenged me to get the glitter of the surf on the beach.
