Summer of Color Purple

The Summer of Color this week is Purple.
Once again I did mine with flowers from
my garden. It is watercolor, pen
and ink.
Teddy my bichon became bored and decided
to nap amongst the irises I was painting.
Just about asleep!
I tried to get his shiny metal tags in the
painting but would you disturb that little
face, So I "let the sleeping dog lie "!
Thanks again to Kristen for the 
opportunity to participate. This 
has been so much fun and a great
addition to my Grow book.
Check her blog out. The button
on the right will take you right there.

Such a pretty picture you've painted, Sharon, of your little Bichon sleeping in the Iris bed!!! Your irises are gorgeous! How I envy you . . . . I've never been able to grow bearded iris and have (sadly) waved my white flag. Needless to say, I've enjoyed YOURS today!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo
