My artist neighbor


This small painting appeared last week on my little table where I do my gardening, on my front porch. I like her Van Gogh type style.

I moved it back so I could see the volunteer petunia in the succulent planter. See, AC, you're not the only one with volunteer petunias! And I only have purple ones growing, so this seedling must be a throwback!

Today's quote:

What do happy people have in common? They appreciate what they have.



  1. Our volunteer carpet of them is still thriving. It is just crazy.

  2. Beautiful painting to find among your lovely flowers and succulents.

  3. What a great neighbor you have. I like the painting and the plant,

  4. Your neighbor painted a very bright and colorful painting, Barbara. I am scheduled to visit "Van Gogh Immersive" show in October and I'm really looking forward to it.


I'm glad to hear your thoughts...as long as spammers stay away~~
