40th Wedding Anniversary

     This Saturday, October 27th, I threw my parents a surprise party for their 40th Wedding Anniversary. My mother's wedding bouquet was yellow roses. Being that the ruby is symbolic for 40 years I bought red and yellow roses which my Aunt used to decorate their cake with. My Aunt brought these  mini yellow roses and used a  RUBY RED GRAPEFRUIT  as the vase! How unique is that! We had a lot of fun!

Busy Bee!
 The third in my series of three paintings of bees on gaillardia flowers.
I just got these prints last week and I am now stretching them.

These little guys have been in my yard quite often over the summer. In this photo they are grazing in the shade under our trampoline while their mother was off pruning my neighbors fruit trees! I took many photos to use as reference material in case I decide to paint this pair sometime.
