My Garden Angel


I got SO much done outside this weekend! We hauled in dirt to fill in where we took trees out, tilled the garden and flower beds. I potted flower pots and tonight finished planting my little garden.

I came in and decided to start on my little 5 x 7 watercolor project that I sketched last week. I decided to do the background in blues and greens. She just looks like she's sitting out in the garden, watching over me and my 50 year old heart to make sure I don't die of exhaustion from all this physical activity! LOL Hey, it seriously was a long (and somewhat lazy) winter!

Take care my friends in blogland!
G'night,
Darla
