Gorgeous Light in My Garden Yesterday

Beautiful light in my garden

After two days of torrential rain, the sun finally made an appearance and filled my garden with gorgeous light. Everything looks so green and lush.

After the dark skies cleared, this huge sun-lit cloud formation took my breath away. How gorgeous are these clouds?

In other news, after a two-week hiatus to focus on yard clean-up and home remodeling tasks, I finally started a new painting this evening. Check back later this week to see the finished painting. What’s new in your neck of the woods?

      I have another fairy painting underway–this one featuring a hydrangea. So far so good….

    Me too! I dig the re-decorating (except when it reminds me how much I should do lol), but I look forward to the paintings posts most!

      Based on positive responses to my posts, my paintings are more popular than my cooking, interior decorating projects, or gardening posts, although I love dabbling in all those areas.

      Have to enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. We have more rain in the forecast–and possibly another derecho coming this evening or tomorrow. One was more than enough.
