Every year just before Easter the Azalias in front of my house bloom. They are so pretty. Most years it rains though and washes the blooms off. I think they might be hanging on this year. Here is a picture of them. You can't see the house because of the hedge. I only see the flowers when I come home or go out. It is always a pleasant surprise. Happy Easter.
My mom collected so many little jokes out of the newspaper. This was one that I laugh at everytime I run across it. So simple but so funny. Innocent humor. Plus I can just hear my mom saying it to my Dad. She had such a dry sense of humor and so unexpected sometimes. Ha ha mom, you still can make me laugh and bring joy to my day.
I love the month of February because it is so full of red things. What a way to brighten up a dull month. Although I must say, here in California we are having warm springlike weather. Very unusual. February has always been about RAIN. I guess now that my roof is fixed the rain needs to stay away. Ha Ha. I am busy making red bracelets and cute valentine buttons. Here is a valentine sketch for my husband.
I have been on such a long adventure. My trip to North Carolina was divine. I even was able to stand in a snowstorm. That alone was worth the trip. I was so inspired by the Richmond art scene that I created these ear rings for my daughter as soon as I got home. I have had these glass striped beads for some time and am delighted how they turned out.
