Neighborhood Flowers


Welcome. Please take a stroll around my neighborhood and enjoy the summer flowers while I am taking a vacation and blog break. I will be painting the beautiful California lavender fields and when I return we will paint lavender bouquets together.













































I hope you enjoyed your stroll. Thank you for visiting. Your comments mean so much to me and I sincerely appreciate that you have taken time to leave me a comment and follow my blog. If you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special, please leave me a comment of send me an e-mail. Have a lovely week and wonderful summer and I will see you in a week.
Blessings, Erin

Hi Erin! The pictures are just beautiful. There's never any mistaking a California garden. I guess y'all just have the best weather.

The blue garden gate photo is just gorgeous! It sort of reminds me of European pictures. You capture just the right image, and it is always a joy to look at your pictures! Have a wonderful vacation!!!

You have captured some real beauty here, Erin. I was in CA a few short months ago and miss seeing the abundant flowers everywhere.

The neighborhood is beautiful! Have you seen the pictures of my pitiful yard? I've about given up trying to grow anything with the deer around.

Have a great week!

Erin, it looks like your 3 digit temps haven't hurt the flowers in your neighborhood! :-)
