I’ve been “sketching” with watercolors more lately. And enjoying it!

Best of Botanicals Exhibition

I’m very pleased to share that one of my photographs has been accepted for the Best of Botanicals exhibition opening on May 22 at PHOTO, a fine art photography gallery in Oakland, California. The national juried exhibition will benefit the San Francisco Botanical Garden. It will be on display until July 12, so if you’re in the San Francisco/Oakland area I’m totally jealous! I hope you’ll visit the gallery and tell me all about the beautiful botanical imagery.

Happy Monday! Today I thought I would share some recent graphics created for a brand new event in
Starkville — the King Cotton Crawfish Boil. I had a good time with this little mudbug! The event is going to be a fun one and it benefits the Starkville Main Street Association. So if you’re in the Starkville area, be sure to get your advance tickets for April 26!

growing . Repurposed Tulips


We’ve been so excited to welcome Spring temperatures and weather over the last few weeks! I’ve been hankering to get started with more flower gardening around the house and getting our own little “garden” reclaimed from the elements. So far, we have all enjoyed getting our hands dirty.

I wanted to share a small repurposing story today. Take a look at these gorgeous spring blooms! The tulip bulbs started out in some potted arrangements my mother used last spring for some entertaining. The pots were a combination of various spring blooms, and once they faded, she passed them down to me. We put them — pots and all — in a corner of the backyard and forgot about them through the winter, unsure if the tulips would bloom again. A few weeks ago we noticed some peeks of color over in the west corner. All the bulbs were budding again, including the tulips! I suppose we can thank this unusually cold winter for that blessing. We’ve transplanted all the bulbs to highlight the porch of the storage building we call “the little house,” and we’ve been enjoying them ever since. They will be waning soon, so I wanted to make a record of the repurposed beauties. I hope your day is just as vibrant.
