Olive Branch - SOLD

This is the olive branch I was referring to yesterday.  The one my friend and I spotted, and then snagged.

No kidding, I carried this baby home with me by dumping the ice out of my wonderful Starbucks Tazo Passion Lemonaide (yummy AND refreshing), and sticking the branch in the tops slotted cover.  It worked great!

Wild Poppies - SOLD

Wild poppies grow heartily all over California, but especially in certain locales.  Photographers galore - on the ground, slouched over.  Hey, whatever works for that most perfect of shots right...

Lily - SOLD

The title of this painting isn't very clever, but it's all I had after a very busy day.  Unlike most of my lillies which are from Hearst Castle, and especially Mission San Juan Capistrano, these are from Balboa Park in front of their Botanical Garden building.  This place is awesome.  There's even an area when you walk in where they've planted all types, colors, etc of flora and fauna that you can touch, smell, oh and ah after.  The bunch of us that are a more curious lot were getting kind of loud with our wow's after some of our tactile fun and more and more people came over.  Now that was a great idea and the plants rather seemed to enjoy it as well.

A Rose by Any Other Name - SOLD

The mint julep cup is a perfect setting reflecting this lovely single rose at it's prime in full blossom.
