I had only about an hour of
time for art yesterday.
I enjoy sketching and painting flowers from my garden -
and in the winter months there are very few
from which to choose.
But my Hellebores are my all-time favorites.
They are first to bloom,
their colors are incredible,
they spread like crazy,
and all are gifts from gardening friends.
I cherish the memory of one particular friend,
and recall vividly the day he delivered a box of
his Hellebore babies to my doorstep.
He knew that he was bestowing a most appreciated
and much loved gift upon me.
He has since passed,
but his memory and his flowers live on.
Bless You, Lou!
