Re: March Monthly Challenge and Chat, 2019

I was so busy uploading photos to the Reference Image Library (RIL) that I almost forgot to do this!

Enjoy and if you'd like to add your own photos, please do.

Do you recognize the farm road? It's the one around the corner from my house. I believe I sent you the watercolor of it?


Thank you!

Thanks! That lion is from the local garden store. This store sells those topiary trees, last year they had a camel and an elephant. If they have them again and I don't restrain myself, one of them is going to end up in my front yard.

Re: March Monthly Challenge and Chat, 2019

Christel, that farm is called "The Mad Farmer's Garden". I really like how you did that, it looks so good.

Dan, that's wonderful. You have such a great style, it's so cool that you cna do that on your phone.

Hi Lil, glad to see you.
