Animal Wedensday - Henry

Here is a sketch I did of Lynn's Henry. He is much more handsome than I was able to depict. Here I have made him look like he has been on a diet and is a little cranky about it.  For more Henry subjects you can go to Lynn's Animal Wednesday post here. For more Animal Wednesday posts you can pop over to Mim's blog here.  HAW everyone.

Animal Wedensday - First Bee

We had our first pollinator of the season this weekend. It was so exciting to go out and find a bee on the crocus.  I can almost feel spring creeping in now. Yipeeee  Happy Animal Wednesday.

Cactus Monday - Photos

I was lucky enough to get to go to the Chicago Flower and Patio Show last weekend. They had a section of flowers presented by people called House Plants. In this area that is what most cactus are, house plants.
They had quite a variety of cactus.
Some even won ribbons because they were so large, unusual or nicely (is that a word?) grown.
There were lots of succulents mixed in with the cactus. This seems like a common theme as they grow well together since they have about the same water requirements.
They had succulents displayed in ways that one might not usually think of doing. Isn't that why we go to these garden shows, to get ideas. I thought this one was quite dramatic.
I wanted you to know I was thinking about you. I hope you have a Happy Cactus Monday.
