Celebrating spring with Orange You Glad It’s Friday and Friendship Friday Blog Party.

Spring Leaves

Green leaves so soft, so bright, so tender,

Emerging in the first blush of spring,

Bringing forth newness of life,

So fragile, so frail, ever so gentle

With the first bloom of life,

Just waiting to strengthen their sensitive young growth

Into glowing strong armours of emerald delights,

Swaying amidst the elements of love both seen and unseen,

Sharing with nature the joys of being.

Calico she is

Mottled orange and black with white

That’s my sweet Suzie

Gremlins on the bed

Glowing lights of eerie cast

Where did my cats go?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange You Glad It's Friday

Potpourri Monday ~ plus a few haiku

Rolling hills of green
Vast expanses of blue sky
Where is my putter?

This is the golf course at the Laughlin Ranch in Bullhead City, Arizona.   Laughlin Ranch has a golf course, spa, restaurant and banquet rooms. When we were in business we held our annual Southwest Artisans Cooperative Art Marketplace here. Beautiful surroundings! I’d like to share this with Sally on Blue Monday and Our World Tuesday.


Petals of bright red
Anthers awaiting for touch
Bees will do the rest

 
 

I guess you could say I like flowers, since my posts seem to have a lot of pictures of flowers!  And it’s funny, as much as I love flowers when it comes to painting them they are one of the hardest things for me to paint – or draw.  Someone told me they learned how to paint flowers when they were taking a tole painting course.  Once they learned the basics of painting a flower through the tole method they were able to branch out into other styles.  If you would like to see more macro photos of flowers and many other subjects visit Lisa’s Chaos at Macro Monday and mosaics at Mosaic Monday.
