Excellent examples. Well done!
Some wonderful finds this week Elizabeth – the door in Amsterdam is my favorite but all are terrific.
Ah, such a brilliant gallery! I think you have got it all! Love the lady in the striped dress-up by the artwork, bamboo, checquered floors and door… The butterfly! And extra happy I am about the Fritillary – you are the first and only one to have sent this beauty! I had expected it to arrive much earlier this week. Thank you!
I love Fritillary – they are such individuals. In my old garden they naturalized and were such a delight when they popped up – I will have to get some more…
And I have tried several times but cannot make them stay alive!
Oh, these are brilliant! Great selection
what a great variety – thanks for the art and more
the lady with the outfit that matched the painting was my fav of today
