Sweet irises and mid-summer in the garden

SWEET IRISES
AQUARELLA CARD

Voici ma dernière aquarelle, une petite carte avec des iris.  Je l'ai peinte cette après-midi,  alors qu'il pleuvait des cordes.  J'ai ajouté quelques photos du jardin prises hier matin . SVP soyez à l'aise d'utiliser ces photos si elles vous plaIsent!

Here's my latest waterpainting, a small card with irises! Done this afternoon while buckets of rain were pouring outside.  I've added a few pictures of the garden taken yesterday morning.  Please feel free to use any pic you like!


MORNING GLORY

A MIXTURE OF SUMMER CUTIES

NIGELLAS
 
SOME BLUE LOBELIAS
 
YELLOW
(HELP,  I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME OF THESE BEAUTIES)

RED ECHINACEAS

Helen, your watercolor is just lovely! It is no wonder to me you are so influenced by color with all the beauties you have in your garden. Thank you for sharing them and brightening my day!xx

Absolutely lovely painting of beautiful irises, Helen! I also love the photos, especially the morning glory. I may paint that one one of these days!

Hi Celia! I'm more busy these days in the garden but I need to find some time to paint also. You're right, it's full of good subjects. Thanks, have a beautiful day!

Dear Helen - just beautiful card. Your irises are just dreamy. Love them. As for your garden it is beautiful - are the yellow flowers coreopsis? I don't grow them but think they grow here...have "love in a mist" or nigella blooming in my garden now too. Take care and enjoy each lovely day.

Malgré le temps pluvieux, ou peut être à cause de cela, tu a su illuminer cette aquarelle. Je vois que tu n'as que l'embarras du choix et simplement à t'installer au milieu des fleurs de ton jardin pour trouver ton sujet. A bientôt, Viviane
