Transfixed

Canvas primed,

paint pots cracked,

petals sketched,

brushes blacked.

Palette picked,

colours mixed;

garden Artist,

I’m transfixed.

    Very Lovely, Melody!! So, I hovered–I’m pretty sure it’s a rose; is its name Morden Sunrise, or is that just the name of the file?

      Yippee! This is indeed a rose named Morden Sunrise – isn’t that a great name for this one? ‘Morden’ refers to the Manitoba research station it was developed in.

        Ahhh, nice. So much to learn, so little my brain cells…

      • melodylowes says:

        You too? I’ve had Junior Alzheimer’s for years already. My cells are pretty slippery characters – if they don’t see a valid reason for hanging on to something, they let it slip!

      • Caddo Veil says:

        I’m so laughing–Jr Alz!! Me too–for years I’ve made notes–and then can’t find the dang notes! Eventually they surface, and I wonder what the heck they mean–mostly I just laugh. What else can we do??

      • melodylowes says:

        You just have to laugh – it’s the only way. There are some perks – like trying on a jacket I haven’t worn for a while and being incredibly and genuinely shocked to find a $20 bill in the pocket? You simply can’t beat it! 🙂

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Hey, now that’s a bountiful blessing, indeed!!
