Flowers, Birds, & Rainbows! Throw Back Thursday

IMG_20141113_090044I think if you showed this sweet drawing(first grade) to any of my friends or family they would tell you it’s “SO Liz.”   As anyone can see this early illustration shows two birds singing happily & dancing through a garden under a rainbow. There is really nothing better. I enjoy that the flowers are not all the same, the red & yellow are tulips, the blue and purple are irises, they yellow is your stereotypical kid flower, which I think can be any number of flowers.

I love flowers and gardening.  I have planted my tulips & crocus’s for the spring and put away my dahlia’s for the winter. I’m very excited to see the peony tree my friend gave me, bloom in a year or two.   I’m fortunate my husband likes gardening too because he built me two raised beds to grow vegetables during the spring, summer, and fall. Right now we have lettuce, spinach, and we were trying to grow broccoli but some pest is ruining it. The egg shells I sprinkle on the broccoli leaves have not worked to keep this critter away.

Anyway, this is the kind of imagery I like to have dance around in my head, beautiful flowers on a beautiful day while birds sing happily under a rainbow that has two purple stripes and a pink. What a pleasant thought.
