Aloe Bloom

The Desert Botanical Gardens in Tucson had several aloe blooming.  It was much warmer down there - here in Colorado, we are going to get another Polar Vortex round with snow and cold this weekend.  I am grateful we are just on the edges of the cold and it warms up in between.  The Parkview show was very successful for me.  I sold 3 framed pictures, one of the ruffled white amaryllis mandala in previous blog entry.

a jack in the pulpit type flower

A 6-pointed flower star. I liked this flower and it's shape. It made for an interesting graphic presentation.

Prickly Poppy

Another 6-pointed star - thought I ought to have a white flower to represent the snow and cold we are now suffering through.  This has a bit of a 3 dimensional effect and feels like you could touch this flower (not the stem), a Prickly Poppy blossom with it's delicate papery texture..
