I will probably offer this as a print because I love how she looks in black and white too.

I hope you are able to follow along on my journey of 30 in 30 painting challenge.

August????? where did you go?

August 30, 2013

My goodness,

And I thought I was really do ok for me with my postings, or so I thought.  And now here it is the next-to-last-day of August, 2013.

I guess I was so much busier than I thought I was:

Daylily n bokeh

Daylily n bokeh

can’t resist.

My daughter and her love, Kawika came to visit in later August and I am one proud mama.  She is growing or I ought to say ‘has’ grown into a remarkable young woman and she has found a mate for herself that is as wonderful and beautiful as she is.

I watered my gardens this way with such love and caring hoping they would show-off their finery just for these young lovers on their first road-trip out of Washington, and they did:

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico

lots and lots of amazing sweet, nourishing rain-storms came and gave blessing to our part of the world.  And we loved it….everyone, even those people that are use to complaining about the weather, were quiet in their verbal blessing of joy and bliss, and we got more rain:

this is what the rains brought, Blue of Taos

this is what the rains brought, Blue of Taos

A few years back the meadows of El Prado turned blue, but then they didn’t. Wildflowers come in waves of differences over the time of years.  Does that make sense.  Watching the patterns are so wonderful for me,  the progression of times changing and growing.

New Mexico Penestom

I adore these wild flowers and they really didn’t bloom this year at all,  (actually this was taken in July of 08)  but I was missing them, because they come in waves as well.  It all depends on rain, how much we get and when.  What time of year it rains, plays a hugh part in what blooms and what doesn’t in that season.

Beautiful water flows freely with all the rain flowing everywhere.

I love this even slightly fuzzy, because it reminds me of all the big storms we’ve been having.  I adore rain, thunder and no lightning storms. Actually I love the lightning too, but NOT this year, not here.

My crowning glory this year and Rachael loved them.

Lily’s are just incredible and I really had no idea until I grew these. And their fragrance is divine…….

My daughter and her mate were coming and having a bit of a few bumps in the road getting the final details together, so I got into the uplifting, think positive quote thing going on.  I posted this on Facebook for her.  and she made it and we got to meet Kawika.  What a  joyous way to spend August, 2013.

Peace n Abundance,

CheyAnne❧

Iris, Roses and Lobelia from my Gardens

July 15, 2013
The Magic of an Iris

These Iris were from last month and I’ve really been wanting to share them with you.

Iris’ to me are such an incredible flower.  They don’t take much water, they can lay around out of the ground for seasons on end and still survive when you finally stick them in the ground.  And the flowers are STUNNING.  The fragrance they emit is so heavenly that I’m sure the clouds in heaven are floating on their magical aromas.  They remind me of my Grandma Hogard and my father, her son.

And then yesterday morning, while out on my morning walk around the gardens I noticed my Peace Rose was beginning to really open up

spring has sprung

spring has sprung

here in northern New Mexico

can you see the little bird nest?

can you see the little bird nest?

I have walked by this tree many times and even photographed it for it’s beautiful silvery bark and dark little seed cones that hang all over it.

Here is an earlier shot of this tree

I think these trees are sycamores.

So…..the other day down by the river I was surprised to catch this little bird nest hanging right there in my face

these yellow pieces are also straight out of the camera.  If you ever have ideas that you would like to see typed into/onto any of these images, please suggest it and I will create it so we can all see.

A few of these will be added to my New Mexico Mtn Girl Etsy shop and I will come back and add links.  If at any time you see something I don’t have posted I would love to know.

Hope your spring has finally sprung,

peace n abundance,

CheyAnne
