Beauty of Nature.....

In purple and lime green for

Beauty of Nature

Lilacs are one of my favorites.  I had several in my yard in Reno.
Oh, the beautiful blooms and glorious fragrance.
I don't see them here in South Carolina.  I've heard that they
don't do well.  We do have Wisteria here.  That seems to
soothe my craving for purple blooms and lovely fragance.

Soartful is featuring art with owls this month.

On a visit to see mom, in Montana my daughter and I attended a

I'd never seen up close before.   When it was the owl's turn,
I found out they fly silently.  I think that is amazing.
Here is a link to see just how 

My owl drawing cames from
