Thumbs up OCTOBER Plant Parade

Hi everyone
I'm your Host for this October Plant Parade and the Topic is
"PLANTS IN POTS"


All the 10 images I've posted, are from photos of my own garden (at various times of the year) and you are welcome to use them to paint an entry from for this Plant Parade, OR you may use your own, or from the RIL.

You may use any art painting/drawing medium BUT please remember DO NOT POST your PLANT PARADE ENTRY UNTIL REVEAL DAY WHICH IS WEDNESDAY 25th OCTOBER but you can chat about the topic at anytime before then....and please let us know how your entry is going.

Most of all have fun! Looking forward to seeing your entries on 25th October 2017.

Fuchsia in a pot near my back-door




Another hanging basket in our bbq area




Pots at my front door last Summer.


This group of green pots in my lounge, have been hit so many times as Pippa plays with her ball, I'm amazed they still survive! So good to have a photo of them while they are still in one piece!


Looking at this photo of my red pots, I see they need painted again!




And now you just all knew I would have to get my Pippa in there somewhere didn't you! Pippa looking a bit cranky as she had to sit beside a flower-pot, and obviously didn't want too! Sorry for those on Watermedia who have seen this photo before.



Enjoy!

Re: OCTOBER Plant Parade

Hi everyone

I've been offline for a week but back again now.

How are we all doing? Has anyone begun their painting yet? And in saying that I haven't either....but I must get to it soon. I'm always rushing at the last moment, so this month, I'm going to start earlier.

Re: OCTOBER Plant Parade

Hi all. I didn't manage to finish mine last month as I had a problem with my arm, but I'm determined to finish this month!
