Clusters of Queen Annes Lace

Daily Practice

After staining every window in the house, washing curtains, hanging window treatments and then curtains, cleaning the spills and mess, I wanted some 'fresh air' from the order of the finish we were using.

Hot as it was, I walked around our road and spotted some of the last Queen Anne's Lace flowers. I LOVE their daintiness and the way they really brighten our green roadsides.

I started by adding masking, then splashing on colors, especially focused on the flower bottoms.

After all the threatening clouds, not a drop of rain -- sigh ... Already the sycamore trees are showing signs of stress and have turned yellow as they do in September, and our crab apple tree has also dropped a lot of leaves.

Rain dance anyone?
