Today is Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and I have some garden blooms for you and also some Easel Blooms, paintings I have done of blooms. Hope you like them!
First I couldn't resist photographing this little butterfly so busy on the Mexican Petunias!
Once again I am drawn to the beautiful lilac color of the crape myrtle. The blooms are beginning to fade just a bit, but still very showy.
One of my all time favorites is the Zinnia, which loves hot weather.
The Desert Rose is blooming. I have had it in a big pot for years, and last winter the cold almost got it. But it is back and is blooming prettily now.
Now for some of my painted blooms. For you who do not know, I am an artist and you can see lots more of my work on http://egrettawells.blogspot.com/. It is called Paintings by Egretta Wells. I do many flower paintings and wildlife, still life paintings, etc., so take a look!
I did this painting from a rose I picked in the garden.
