Easter Lilies



Greetings everyone, I hope you are well and taking one day at a time.  Even though we are isolated right now you are now alone.

Materials:
Art Glitter
Impression Obsession - Easter Greetings
My Favorite Things - Lily
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Purple
Spellbinders - Grand Ovals

I have re-potted all my Orchids now, they really needed it.  Some I am sure were in the same small containers for years.  I just can't believe how pretty they are when in bloom.


The other day a friend sent me a funny note.

I heard there might be a food shortage
We may have to start hunting our own food
I don't even know where Doritos live.

We took a drive this weekend to the Skagit Valley, WA but of course never left the car only a handful of people out in the valley which was nice.
They grow acres of Daffodils and Tulips each year. The Tulips won't be in bloom until April.  All the pictures I have posted are from the Skagit Valley area.

  3. Your drive looks like a beautiful one and probably a sorely needed "get out" event. Those daffodils -- still too early here, but soon, though not, I think, like that! Stay well.
