I can only imagine how I looked yesterday evening. All of the vacationers were sitting enjoying their happy hour cocktails…while odd-ball Mary bounced from hedge to hedge cutting the resort’s flowers! Not to mention a camera wrapped around my neck for added appeal. They were sipping away, as I honed in on curious little lizards and beautiful flora. I just know they were wondering what this freak with scissors was doing on the patio! I was just waiting for one of the grounds keepers to accost me and tell me to step away from the fruits of their labor, but I just couldn’t restrain myself. I just love flowers!
I made three different bouquets yesterday and then had fun photographing the still lives I created. I even found a three-foot piece of Spanish Moss for added appeal. Yeah, not your typical tourist.
So I started painting one of the still lives this morning, took a break for a late breakfast, painted, went swimming with the kids…now I am finishing up and blogging before I head back to the pool. My kids will be swimming until at least 9pm tonight. Their Grandmother just fed them some French fries, so they will be good for another 4 hours! Did I mention I am the proud mother of a hoola-hoop competition winner? Yeah, they are having a blast. The resort serves ice cream sundaes promptly at 3pm each day. It’s a tough gig.
So stop and enjoy my flowers! Maybe if you strain your eyes you can catch a lttle glimpsef the sun!
