I want to show you my new rose bush. Well it's kind of new, I bought it a few months ago when it was nothing but a short stick with no hint of growth. It promised on the label beautiful orange blooms which was extremely difficult to believe when I looked at the dry stump that I'd brought home from the garden centre! I've always loved roses but have been too scared (and lazy!) to try to grow them because I was under the illusion they needed lots of fuss and bother to keep them alive let alone to produce beautifully scented flowers.
Can you believe it?!
The strawberries are coming along too. I only have 2 of these plants so there's no chance of me overdosing on them and let me tell you, I so would.
I love strawberries.
When I came across it again I liked the composition and wondered if I could make it into a painting. Instead of starting from scratch, I had a canvas that I wasn't happy with and decided to paint the image of the mother and baby onto it.
Her name is Violet.
