Jean, thank you for hosting with these beautiful flowers, good selection. Mine are blooming so I may give plein air a try if the sun comes out sometime soon.

Re: February 2014 PLANT PARADE

Jean - oh yes, thanks Jean. Hibiscus, gorgeous flowers! I wish I lived in the top of the North Island of New Zealand where they will be blooming at the moment, but too cold for them where I live at the bottom of the South Island! I cant wait to get started on a painting of them, such glorious colors!

And Ditto for me. Sorry I let the side down last Month, but I just couldnt pull it together, damn Snowdrop got consigned to the garbage.

Teach have a wonderful birthday, do something really nice for yourself... as to hubby...Learnt a few things living with a hypochondriac, "feeling crook?, Man up, go to the Doc, or shad up" ..worked for me .
Might add, said Hypochondriac is still walking the earth at 75.
