My favorite summer fruit. 

 Nothing tastes better than chilled blueberries.

I have been eating so many of them lately that I thought
I better snap a few before they are all gone today. 

 I have started a few watercolor paintings of these beauties.

The best thing is.....as you are working on them and the 
blood sugar starts feeling a little low....just pop a few
in your mouth and you have the energy to paint all day long.

What are you working on this week?

I am sharing my berries with Tuesday Muse, Tuesday Around the World and

My Peony Garden

 June was a month full of Peonies along my fence.
A glimpse of one out of my sketchbook.

 This year they lasted well into July.
They started out as a vibrant pink.

 Everyday was a party of pinkness.

 As the weeks went on the color started to mellow out.

 Then we had a terrible storm and over half of them landed on the ground.

 They were all hit hard and drooping.

 A lot that were still on the stalk looked like this.

The few with petals began to take on an abstract form.

 By the beginning of July,,,the last petals.

 As of yesterday......

 Reminds me of a jester´s hat.....

 Looks like a moose head....

The new and the old.  
What a difference a month and a half makes.

I am sharing this with
Paint Party Friday, Weekend Flowers Fridays, Sweet Shot Tuesday, Floral Friday Foto
and Outdoor Wednesday.
