GARDEN BLOGGERS' BLOOM DAY-THE IDES OF MARCH

An Arrangement for Mia by Yours truly


Carol at Maydreamgardens the creator of Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is pretty generous when it comes to what can be included so I'm sure that she won't mind if I post my painting of tulips until my real ones bloom.

Right now the only thing blooming in my indoor garden are the same plants I've already shown you back in December and January and I'm sure you don't want to see them again.

Maybe by the next GBBD we'll have real tulips ?!

  1. It's a beautiful painting and a very creative way to post some "blooms" for bloom day. I don't mind at all seeing your picture instead of real blooms! You are quite talented.

  2. Carolyn Gail, you are a most talented artist! I always mean to comment on the picture at the top of your blog, I love it! Do you have a large photo of it posted somewhere? How wonderful to be able to paint flowers until your garden ones are blooming. Thanks for showing us your lovely work.

  3. Thanks for the compliment, Carol. The last two days here were divine but Spring-like weather has left us again.

  4. Thanks, Frances. The blog template was selected by my webmaster son and is from the Hobbit.

    I'll be over to visit your bloom post for March. Bet you have quite a few flowers blooming right now.

    Hope you achieve your dream of becoming a top writer in Austria. " Make no small plans " is an old Chicago motto .

  8. Carolyn, I'm so glad you posted this painting. I LOVE the colors and I am SO partial to vases laden with flowers of just about any kind... and french provencal. Very nice.
    It rained all day yesterday and this morning is just as dreary so I'm not sure I'll get a post up for GBBD ... we'll see how the day progresses.

    Have a GREAT weekend.

  10. Another beautiful painting! It is lovely. At this point in the year, it is hard to believe flowers will emerge in just one month!!!

  15. You have so got to get some Galanthus elwesii. With your garden in the city's heat island, you would definitely have some blooming already. I compliment your wonderful artwork again.

  17. Hey Chicago gals - thanks for stopping by MMD and lintys.

    Thanks for the compliments. I've got to plant some snowdrops for early Spring blooms next year !

  18. While I'm sure you would love to have some blooms to look at, I keep stopping at your blog just to stare longingly at your most amazing Hobbit photo. I've been Hobbit and Lord of the Rings crazed since I was a teenager and your blog template is my most favorite of them all.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Why thank you, Melanie. My son, the webmaster, is a big Hobbit and Lord of the Rings fan as well and picked the template for me.

  20. Happy Ides of March, Carolyn! I love this painting, because I love blue and orange together in the garden. and yes, here's hoping there will be tulips (well, for me, daffs, snowdrops, etc) for April's GBBD.

  21. Hi Karen, Artists Garden,

    Thanks so much for visiting.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Right on, Jodi -orange and blue or even yellow and blue in the garden is a great combination for me.

  23. Carolyn, your painting is just beautiful! I love it, love it, love it! I can only dream of having artistic talent such as yours. I'm so glad you shared it!

  24. Your paintings are outwardly simple but more intricate and densely woven upon further inspection. This last one is very nice. Reminiscent of Matisse.

  25. Kylee,

    I think you love my painting :)
    Thanks. Very happy to share it with you.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks, Ki. Matisse is a favorite of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ki said it better, but something about your painting also brought Matisse to my mind, Carolyn. It's very striking and a creative addition to blooming day! I hope you have lots of garden blooms for the next meeting, with winter finally banished for all you storm and ice-weary Chicago folk.

  28. Thanks, Annie. I certainly pale compared to Matisse but don't mind the comparison at all :)

    I can see bulbs peeping out beneath the mulch and I know it won't be long before old man winter is gone.
