Last Summer

When the winter gets as cold as we've experienced this year, not to mention the snow; it's hard to imagine that in a few short months I will be able to enjoy this glorious rose again....this is a David Austin own root rose. The only rose that is really impressive in my garden, year after year, despite many years of periodic neglect ;o}

I have been getting ready for the beginning of the OWOH event! I so loved that last year meeting other art loving, creative, like-minded bloggers !

An Award

Well I received this award from this dear (co-designer) Eileen and I am very happy and flattered but I am guilty of receiving a few others and being unable to respond in kind.......I apologize to those that I have been unable to reciprocate.
Having said that, I would like to pay this one forward to the following people because they inspire me in art, inspiration and kindness and, once again, I must apologize because I prefer not to follow the none of these inspirational bloggers need do anything but know that they are special ;o}

#2 Sandy from Stempelchaotin
#3 Linda from Friends In Art
#4 Marilyn from Outside the Lines
#5 Nellie from the Dutch Stamp Tramp
#6 Kelly from Artsy Visions

All the blogger's I have selected share the one strongest common element........they are inspirational in their artworks and their continued commitment of sharing something of themselves is very much appreciated!
