These bright, peppery tasting flowers are in full bloom at the Arboretum .... we sold so many of them over the weekend too. Their leaves and flowers are edible and add a 'zip' to salads of all types. I love how they drape over the beds we've planted them in ...

We're off to get more matting and frames for my month-long exhibit at the library whein my work town. I exhibited there in January and I'm back for another display. I have quite a few new paintings to frame.

We also have the grands coming to a pre-Easter dinner, so I hope to have some time to paint as well and get some plants in the ground. The season is moving ahead fast!

Have a great day and a terrific Easter weekend! And thank you too for voting!!

  1. These are so great Lin! You've just reminded me to get in a quick couple of sketches as mine are now just about at the end of their tether

  2. Those are just gorgeous. Have a great weekend with your relatives.

  3. Congratulations on your show Lin! These are so lovely... I have tried to grow them for 3 or 4 years, with no luck so far. They don't like my desert climate, I guess! I love their flavor and gorgeous orange color.
